Ok, thanks. I'm currently investigating on the way to make a port of
weboob for FreeBSD and I read that there are mechanisms in FreeBSD
Ports infrastructure to deal with setuptools python packages, so it
might be much easier to make a port for it with the dependency
mechanism activated in setup.py

Another related question: I also saw in setup.py file that there is a
"packages" variable. I'm not sure if it is also dependency-related(I
looked into Setuptools Developer's guide at the "Using
find_packages()" section, but I'm kind of lost). Could you briefly
explain what it is for?
