Many binaries in iproute2 are linked to libcap, not just the tipc binary, so please move libcap to from optdepends=() to depends=(). And the package contains a python script 'routel', so python should be added to optdepends=().

iproute2 W: Dependency libcap detected but optional (libraries ['usr/lib/'] needed in files ['usr/bin/dcb', 'usr/bin/arpd', 'usr/bin/ifstat', 'usr/bin/bridge', 'usr/bin/nstat', 'usr/bin/tc', 'usr/bin/tipc', 'usr/bin/devlink', 'usr/bin/rdma', 'usr/bin/genl', 'usr/bin/ip', 'usr/bin/rtmon', 'usr/bin/ss', 'usr/bin/vdpa'])

iproute2 E: Dependency python detected and not included (programs ['python3'] needed in scripts ['usr/bin/routel'])
This task depends upon
