I knocked out a patch to checkpkg that allowed the calls from GAR to
say -i $pkg,$pkg2, or some such.  It then skipped validating those
dependencies and GAR presumably passed in the set of packages being
built currently.  That was rejected.

I submitted a second patch that let it evaluate multiple packages at
the same time, remembering missing libraries/dependencies and checking
again at the end after checking the rest of the packages.  I'd have to
dig it out, but afaik, there wasn't anything wrong with this patch, it
just wasn't applied.
