I disagree with this route. As you can see, homebrew makes things =
simpler for you:

  depends_on :autoconf if build.head?
  depends_on 'pkg-config' =3D> :build
  depends_on 'readline'
  depends_on 'gdbm'
  depends_on 'libyaml'

boom. done. esp for a student... why should they bother with something =
more complex as well as error prone?
