This is used in the crda PKGBUILD to generate keys-gcrypt.c or 
keys-openssl.c from a public key.

The regulatory database is signed with John Linville's private key, and 
his public key is hardcoded into the crda and regdbdump binaries using 
these source files, to ensure the integrity and authenticity of the 
regulatory database file.

It might be possible to generate these files in advance and download 
them during the build process, but this seems like much work with no 
real benefit. I say we keep the makedepend. Personally, I don't care 
whether a makedepend is in community or not.
