How do do I inspect compile-time dependencies for packages?

You want a "visual" output of the dependency tree for a particular package?

 bitbake --dry-run --verbose $packagename | grep "current path" | less

should give you that information. Another way is the more recent

 bitbake -g $packagename && less *.dot

Then, installing for example debian package graphviz we can convert .dot file in .ps

 dot -Tps  -o

And then we can open the .ps file with gimp.

Be careful that a big package give a .dot and .os result that requires too much RAM, for example mplayer.
