setup.ini redundant dependencies

I was looking at a fresh copy of setup.ini today, and I noticed this

    requires: libcrypt0 libdb5.3 libgdbm4 libssp0 perl_base perl_base

and this

    requires: perl perl_base cygwin

In the first example, perl_base is listed twice. In the second example, perl and
perl_base are listed. This is strange because perl_base is a dependency of perl,
so the line should have read

    requires: perl cygwin

I know that setup.ini is automatically generated, but could the process be
tweaked to resolve some of these issues?
