questions about LilyPond dependencies

Hi folks

As I'm working on building a flatpak of Frescobaldi, I must compile from source all dependencies and bundled applications, including LilyPond (without the documentation).
I have two questions:

1. Ghostscript is not a requirement for building, but it is a requirement for running lilypond. So I'm surprised that ghostscript is treated as an optional program (see beelow).

2. ./configure found mpost but it's complaining about missing metapost CTAN package. Should I be worried about this error? Can I skip the error and see what happens?

This is the output I'm currently getting:

WARNING: Please consider installing optional programs or files: URW++ OTF fonts (download OTF files from ';a=tree;hb=91edd6ece36e84a1c6d63a1cf63a1a6d84bd443a' and put them under '~/.local/share/fonts' etc., or use --with-urwotf-dir) gs gs extractpdfmark (Optionally using Ghostscript >= 9.20 together with Extract PDFmark can significantly reduce the disk space required for building the documentation and the final PDF files.) texi2html dblatex epsf.tex lh CTAN package (texlive-lang-cyrillic or texlive-texmf-fonts) pngtopnm convert rsync

ERROR: Please install required programs: metapost CTAN package (texlive-metapost)

See INSTALL.txt for more information on how to build LilyPond
