   * Make configure use the dependency resolver
   This means it makes smarter decisions and also decions that are more
   consistent with those taken by the install command.

 Currently we do not really use the error message produced by the resolver,
 we just fall back to doing the old thing.

 This could be improved if the error messages produced by the resolver were
 better and took into account broken packages etc.
