We are experiencing something similar on the build servers and are
looking into it. Our issue seems to be related to audacity having
install_if audacity-plugins, and audacity-plugins makedepending on
audacity (via audacity-dev).

In all cases, sounds like issue in install_if handling. If you can post
the list of packages installed, and the packages in 'world' that would
be helpful. Thanks.
