No. These are two different levels of dependencies. Config.in 'select' 
determines which packages are to be built. You need this for mandatory 
dependencies. The per package $(PKG)_DEPENDENCIES determines the ORDER of the 
build. $(PKG)_DEPENDENCIES should list both mandatory AND optional 
dependencies to get a reproducible result.
