This happened after:

I understand the needs for minimizing, but there is no need to move common
dependencies like KI18n (and probably others).

To be totally honest, the scripts from release-tools can handle special cases
like this, and there are two right now (ktp-desktop-applets and kajongg), but
I'd rather have that list removed than extended. I vote for restoring the
search in the top-level file.

Unrelated, but it's worth noting that after the minimization, there is no
check of the Frameworks version, which may be a problem if a feature requires
a specific version - unless I've missed it
