Might be nice if the default at list listed them for a second before 
continuing.  I know some of the FreeBSD ports will spit out a message 
saying "you can optionally set such and such to build such and such, press 
ctrl-c now" and gives you about 5 seconds before it keeps on going.

That way at least you'd see the optional dependencies and could bail out 
if you decide you want them, but not be annoyed (too much) if you don't.
