   I think the original plan was that := and :* would only be for
 build+run: deps.
   Because for build: only, once the package is built the dep shouldn't
 matter, and for run: only the dep might not be installed at all at build
 time.
   But it's not implemented like that at the moment.

 Also, the default behaviour for build-only deps should match ':*'.

 For slotted build-deps, I only found two cases:
 1. packages where we explicitely list all supported slots (autotools,
 vala,..)
 2. build tools that are only slotted because the underlying library
 changed and the binaries behave the same.
