It seems like a lot, but you'll have to see that linux distributions 
contain most of that stuff by default while Solaris doesn't. As long as 
the user has kind of a choice and the depend file of pkg is used in a 
supporting way, I don't think there is a reason to keep all the nice 
features away from the user. Splitting up the required stuff in smaller 
packages would make things a little bit easier I think.
