The functionality of recognizing which packages were automatically
installed as dependencies has been in apt for a while, so pretty much
any package manager has that functionality now.
As of apt 0.7.20, you can set the apt config variable
APT::Get::Build-Dep-Automatic to true and any packages installed via
build-dep will be marked as automatically installed but with no package
that pulled them in. So cleaning them up is a simple matter of "apt-get
autoremove" after you're done using the packages.
: You can do this either on a case-per-case basis by adding "-o
APT::Get::Build-Dep-Automatic=true" to the build-dep command or
permanently by putting it in /etc/apt/apt.conf.
