This will happen only if we don't have dpatch installed in our target. 
If it is not installed you cannot satisfy the build dependency without 
force with scratchbox dpatch. Currently we don't have dpatch in our 
external SDK because we don't have any package that have it as their 
build dependency. If dpatch is needed it can be easily added to our release.

There aren't so much packages, one option is to remove the 
/scratchbox/tools/ps link and use the targets ps with cpu transparency.

In Sputnik scope there is none. Anyway if automake 1.9 is needed then 
someone should fetch that from somewhere and call it directly with 
automake-1.9 name.
