Technical question time...
how abstract can we realistically make this?  Are we talking about a
developer needing to make an explicit listing of packages or specific
provides  per application? Or is this something that can be abstracted
so that when a specific library isn't on the system some package
install dialog sequence gets fired off?

I'm guessing that abstraction really isn't possible here, and its
going to be a modest amount of work per tool to get the listings
accurate.
