For example, dmraid actually depends on libbytesize or else udisks will segfault, though I only use ext4+LUKS. I didn't feel like trying to work out what all the actual dependency relationships are (sorry) so I just installed all the optional deps to get a working system.

If it were me I would just make them required deps and be done with it, but that's the laziness speaking.
This task depends upon
