It is a Freshen bug, yes, the same one you came across before; it
doesn't look at BuildInformation. It's a bit of an architectural
problem that I haven't figured out how to solve cleanly: just merging
BuildInformation in to the dependencies will require them even if a
binary package ends up being used, because of the order things are
resolved, but not including them leads to this. I have a preliminary
fix for it in my local tree, but it has a way to go before it's

The "fix" until either a patched Freshen, or Freshen 3.0 (if it
requires major architectural changes), is just to run `Compile Foo` on
the problem program directly. It shouldn't be a problem once
something's been installed.
