Comment #2 by Benoît MINISINI:

Indeed. I think this is because components must be written inside the Gambas sources (like Linux drivers with the Linux kernel).

When inside the source tree, dependencies are managed by the IDE. I.e. you can load a component without its dependencies. It will just fail sooner or later, but the dependencies will not be loaded automatically.

But components written in Gambas can actually be developed outside of Gambas source tree, and so packaged. And packaging cannot rely on the IDE and should have the dependencies inside.
