The definition of module dependency that the report uses is:

  module X depends on module Y if some header of X's includes some header of

where "some header of X's" refers to the headers in libs/X/include.

That is, it doesn't track dependencies from libs/X/src or libs/X/test.

In other words, if someone tries to *use* X by including some of its
headers, he needs (in the general case) to also have Y's headers installed,
or the code will not compile.
