For some it will be a benefit to having these additional dependencies  
immediately handy, but others may already be using different versions  
of those libraries and will need to carefully manage which versions  
they use.

I'm not in a position to devote any time to the changes needed to the  
contrib build area to have it be smart about this sort of thing  
though.  There may be 3rd party libraries that cannot be distributed,  
so the build system cannot bulk copy everything in each lib/  
directory, I don't think.
