They will need to install both SoL and SoL-desktop
(SoL-desktop provides needed imagemagick, latex, gnuplot)

Things that still look to be missing:

- mod_perl 
- swig (need to build capa.so and tth.so)
- netpbm (needed for image conversion of some things, not immediately neccessary)
? libgd (needed for randomlabel and gnuplot, might be included with
         the gnuploat package)

And of course CPAN modules
