That is true on the buildbot, but not on people's machines.  The
buildbot has close to the minimal amount of packages installed for any
given build, but people's machines have a lot unrelated packages
installed, usually.  So I don't think we should look into the build
environment, we should only look into the source tree or the packages
that have been built.
