I haven't really checked on what is considered a minimal buildroot
these days, but I think nothing in it even comes close to kdelibs :)

The issue with a couple more BR or a dozen for some packages like
kdelibs just mean that for some chroot builds the build system would
install a couple (or dozen) too many *-devel packages (along with the
mandatory in both cases non devel packages). The drawback is that
these packages will need a couple of seconds more to build. Do we
really care?
