To clear this up:

The network setup thingy is part of dnet-common. Installing without it
is possible. libdnet does not produce strange errors on missing
dnet-common, it just detects the non existing support (implecide) and
returns normal ENOSYS and friends. So no problem here if not installed.

So please have a look if installing without recommends works.

Depends of ices2 on libroar0 isn't the problem.

I suggest to:
close the bug as invalid (it's not ices2's problem) as the install does
exactly what it is suppost to do: it try to set up the system in a way
all features works
OR re-assign it to source package dnprogs which includes libdnet and
dnet-common and request for some better way to solve this.

I do not consider this a ices2 bug as dnet-common is not a depends or
recommends of ices2.

No, but:
libroar0 is used and it depends on libdnet so installed libdnet is
required (but the lib is very small and and stuff so I do not consider
this a problem). Configrued: no but in the case you actually want to use
DECnet support.

Hope I made this a bit more clear :)
