These are no hard dependencies, more like suggested dependencies. ding can offer more features if agrep or ispell are installed.

The README file says: "{Ding is] A Tk based Front-End to [ae]grep, ispell, dict, ..."
I hope this is enough and more info isn't needed? If you disagree, I can add a note to the ebuild.

Thanks.
