If you don't want packages to be removed by the given command, install
them explicitly.

Or better, write a meta-package that keeps them in as a dependency (so
you also know *why* they are installed, and makes system housekeeping
easier in general).

Something like:


        pkgdesc='Dependencies for fooing bars from baz'

        package() {
          depends=(git meson libpng12 sl)

This way you know that e.g. libpng12 is installed on your system because
you occasionally like to foo some bars from baz.
