The BR on jpackage-utils could probably be made optional.
Why only BR?
For example, my package jemmy doesn't use the jpackage-utils facilities
in the run time too.
Moreover, I don't see any reasons to have the run time dependencies on
jpackage-utils for both javadoc and manual subpackages.
At least concerning javadoc subpackages the OpenJDK (i.e java-devel
package) must have complete set of tools to create javadoc, otherwise it
is a bug JDK, isn't it?
