[RFC PATCH 14/14] layer.conf: Extend recipes not to install without explict dependencies


Richard Purdie
 

There are several dependencies which recipes have which are not needed
at runtime, only at build time. Extend the list of these from bison to
include quilt, patch, meson, autoconf, automake and ninja which should
reduce the amount of data being included in native sysroots.

This speeds up and reduces the sstate needed for image builds for example.

If this change breaks recipes, it probably means they're missing an explicit
DEPENDS on something in this list which is a bug in the recipe.
