But even if we find more and more missing dependencies over time, this 
does not solve the maintainability problem.  No longer necessary 
dependencies will typically not be removed.  So in the limit, we end up 
with the tests depending on everything else, so will only be run at the 
end anyway.  So, I say, lets be honest and move them there directly.

(I found this one by chance in a non-clean build after pulling from 
master, where apparently i18npool had been changed so to build new 
localedata libs, and some tests SEGVing within dl_sym.)
