currently if you want to install a pkg from source or from a local
package, you have to a pacman -S foo, and then a pacman -R foo. with
this patch you can do a pacman -Se foo, which will install only the deps
of the given pkg. this option is also usefull, when you want to install
the given pkg with different options, for example with -f

once this was already implemented (see #3220), but
i've got no answers. now i've ported the patch to pacman3:
