Not yet.

They need to be installed for real.
Of course, this does not cover RUN_DEPENDS, but only BUILD_DEPENDS and 

With some more tweaks, it's almost certainly possible to move LIB_DEPENDS
to the fake area as well, it just hasn't been tried yet (I have thought about
it, but there are more urgent problems to cover before that).

It hasn't really been necessary, because conflicts do occur at the user
level so far, and we haven't yet met conflicting build dependencies.
