Nope.  You have to satisfy the dependencies yourself.   The best way,
I've found, is to download all of the freeware packages, untar them into
a temp dir, and install whatever software you need right from there. 
Point Software Manager at the temp dir as the distribution directory,
uncheck everything, then let the dependencies resolve themselves
