Ah, that would explain it, I did not realise that Recommends was 
installed by default. So, for my test, I manually installed FPC/Lazarus 
(and in that process go Recommends). Tried to build from my source 
package and, as expected it told me it needed the other things on my 
dependencies list. But because FPC had already installed, eg 
libcairo2-dev, it was not a valid test.

I guess |--no-install-recommends will allow me to emulate exactly what 
the build machine is doing. I'll git it a try !
