bitbake optionaldep
bitbake package
bitbake package

could result in different binaries/packages due to configure picking
optionaldep in the first case and not in the second one.

Maybe we should start hardcoding --without-optionaldep for all optional
dependencies that are not in DEPENDS?

OR...maybe packaged-staging could save us from that issue?
