Where are you drawing the line to call those the only required
dependencies?  For example, Emacs uses autoconf for the build process,
thus I guess independently of the fact that autoconf support exists for
the given platform, also an m4 implementation is required.  Also, what
standard C library?

It is a question mostly out of curiosity. But there have been talks
recently of working on improvements to the build process, and I am
trying to understand what systems Emacs is targeting, what systems the
build process needs to support, and on which systems Emacs is tested.
