Sub_title: apologies for a double post, but had no answer in the other group

does anyone know an easy way of finding out how (many) packages require a particular package as prerequisite, both for running and building against?

I want to check for a gtk2 requirement against all of the current racy packages. A number will need rebuilding or updating for gtk3 compatability, even though gtk3 will be running in parallel to gtk2 rather than taking control as was done with gtk1.

This will be the first step for a multi-engined puppy with all ?three (xorg plus xwayland plus pure-wayland) which can now be done with the latest kernels from 3.9.x.

The intention is to eventually build a pure pet based system, built from source, along the lines of:-

F1 - xorg server
F2 - xwayland server
F3 - pure wayland server
F4 - ?MIR server
F5 - ?QT5/6 server
F6 - ? server/desktop
F7 - ? server/desktop
F8 - ? desktop/server
F9 - ? desktop/server
F10- weston (wayland desktop)
F11- QuTe desktop (qt based desktop)
F12- JWM desktop (x-org desktop)

This will be possible soon if kernel 3.10.x eventually lives up to it's specs, all you will need is enough cores, fast storage and memory.

Remember, different servers and desktops are good at handling different tasks else they would not have been created in the first place. Alternately you could always create a souped-up base machine with it all to do all the work, and thin-client (or cloud-link) into it from your tablet or phone.

P.S. the '?three' above is that when it works, we could also add any others that come along without reinventing the wheel.

Post 1 may be what you're looking for, roughly speaking. But it's only for installed packages.

thank you ibidem, that would be a good starting point, I think it's even worth it's creating own app. script.
