Sorry, it seems I misunderstood the *-no-deps concept deeply. I had
always assumed that *-no-deps whas a zip to be installed on top of the
*-deps one.

So, just to clarify, the *-no-deps is a standalone executable that works
(I checked it) but only guarantees that the editor works. Other
components, such as Gnus, the web browser, etc, may fail due to missing
tools (e.g. Gnus fails because gnu-tls is missing).
