Yeah, autotools does this as well (but not so clear I must admit) but
as you say below, it doesn't identify which plugin requires which

I've never got my head round Waf, but if looks like it checks some
dependencies several times so I'm assuming that it is per plugin, so
all that is needed is to print "Checking dependencies for xxx" before
doing it, that would associate each plugin with the needed
dependencies.  IIUC Waf is just python so adding a print shouldn't be
too hard (or have I totally misunderstood?).
