cpp-ethereum dependencies breakdown

Is there a resource that could tell me what each dependency from the Building on Ubuntu page (https://github.com/ethereum/cpp-ethereum/wiki/Building-on-Ubuntu) or https://github.com/ethereum/webthree-umbrella/wiki/building corresponds to, in terms of the cmake flags, and which repo they come from (main vs llvm vs ethereum-*)?

Basically a break down of what is needed for what and what depends on what (repo:package) would be great, as it's a hard to tell as it is...

I got no response on the gitter chanel so I'm hoping I'll be more lucky here...

Thanks!

PS: I'm aware of the dot file that describes this: http://imgur.com/BwKjPZ6

    Hey @gavofyork , actually I meant more the specific packages, something like:

    [package] [from repo] [used by]
    libboost-all-dev main libethereum
    libgmp-dev ...
    libleveldb-dev
    libminiupnpc-dev
    libreadline-dev
    libncurses5-dev
    libcurl4-openssl-dev
    libcryptopp-dev
    libjson-rpc-cpp-dev
    libmicrohttpd-dev
    libjsoncpp-dev
    libargtable2-dev
    llvm-3.7-dev
    libedit-dev
    mesa-common-dev
    ocl-icd-libopencl1
    opencl-headers
    libgoogle-perftools-dev
    qtbase5-dev
    qt5-default
    qtdeclarative5-dev
    libqt5webkit5-dev
    libqt5webengine5-dev
    ocl-icd-dev
    libv8-dev
    (made up the first entry, it's just to convey the idea!)

    I really like the dot file (http://imgur.com/BwKjPZ6) actually, I would gladly augment it with that information later on!

    libleveldb-dev: libweb3core
    libminiupnpc-dev: libweb3core

    Unfortunately, yes.

    It appears to have been added as a new dependency to evmjit in the past week or so. My build was failing on that project trying to link the edit library.

    Finally, after Googling I found that libedit-dev is the source of that library. :|

    Thanks guys, where could I find which of the boost libraries are actually needed?

    EDIT: actually answering my own question, I'm getting errors from cmake that's telling me which ones are missing:

    thread
    date_time
    system
    regex
    chrono
    filesystem
    unit_test_framework
    program_options
    random
