It was just a thought.
For eg: after building clutter, clutter-gtk etc I realised that clutter-gst requires gst-plugins-base, which I hadn't installed. So I was wondering if I could specify which all .bb recipes to build when building gstreamer.Again, I wouldn't have know all what I needed anyway. And if the default option is to build all the recipes in the folder, it would have been a big overload.

Thanks. I did check that out.

Sorry but I can't really follow fully but why should OE follow backward-dependency?

BTW: To get an idea what's inside check
tmp/work/overo-angstrom-linux-gnueabi/overo-angstrom-linux-gnueabi/<package_name&version>/package-split for machine dependent packages (clutter is machine dependent due to gles)
tmp/work/overo-angstrom-linux-gnueabiarmv7a-angstrom-linux-gnueabi/<package_name&version>/package-split for architecture dependent packages
