I’m freshly installing certbot-auto on a Debian 7 system. It wants to enable wheezy-backports. Okay, that’s fine, because of the libaugeas thing it needs. But then it gives me this list of packages it wants to install:
binutils cpp cpp-4.7 gcc gcc-4.7 libc-dev-bin libc6-dev libexpat1-dev libffi-dev libgmp10 libgomp1 libitm1 libmpc2 libmpfr4 libpython2.7 libquadmath0 libssl-dev linux-libc-dev python-dev python-pkg-resources python-setuptools python-virtualenv python2.7-dev zlib1g-dev
I can understand a few things, like the python-related support packages. But why is gcc being installed!?
I want to install this on a fairly thin web server and there should be no reason for gcc to be present. IF certbot is all python, what’s gcc for?
