#47443: Reducing the dependencies of ImageMagick (djvulibre)
 Reporter:  ocroquette@…  |      Owner:  macports-tickets@…
     Type:  enhancement   |     Status:  new
 Priority:  Normal        |  Milestone:
Component:  ports         |    Version:  2.3.3
 Keywords:                |       Port:  ImageMagick
 Currently, the ImageMagick port is unconditionally depending on the
 "djvulibre" port, bringing in 160 (!) indirect dependencies, including:
 * dbus, and its Launch Agent
 * gtk3
 * cairo
 * python27
 * sqlite3
 * docbook-xml
 * ...

 As a quick experiment, I removed djvulibre from the list of dependencies,
 and I could build ImageMagick and use "convert" successfully. I suggest to
 remove "djvulibre" as hard dependency and/or create a specific variant if
 it has added value for some users.
