Yes. In fact, after my rework of the module to make it an 
optional dependency, the line in /var/state/lunar/depends looked 
like this:


After deleting the reference and using my edited DEPENDS fiel 
that looks like this:

depends openssl    &&
depends db         &&
optional_depends "Linux-PAM" "--with-pam" "--without-pam" "for 
PAM support" &&
optional_depends "postgresql" "--with-pgsql" "--without-pgsql" 
"for PostgreSQL support" &&
optional_depends "mysql" "--with-mysql" "--without-mysql" "for 
mysql support"

(sorry for the line wraps)

I still get:

# lin -cr cyrus-sasl
+ Reconfiguring "cyrus-sasl"
+ removing all depends for and optional on "cyrus-sasl"
+ adding "required" depends for "cyrus-sasl" on "openssl" (on)
+ adding "required" depends for "cyrus-sasl" on "db" (on)
cyrus-sasl: Install & use optional (not yet installed) module 
Linux-PAM dependency - purpose: for PAM support?  [n]
+ adding "optional" depends for "cyrus-sasl" on "Linux-PAM" 
cyrus-sasl: Use optional (presently installed) module postgresql

+ adding "optional" depends for "cyrus-sasl" on "postgresql" 
cyrus-sasl: Use optional (presently installed) module mysql

+ Spawning download manager
+ download queue: Linux-PAM
pkgconfig  cyrus-sasl
+ starting lin "cyrus-sasl"
Checking dependencies for cyrus-sasl
Checking dependencies for Linux-PAM
Linux-PAM:  Adding required dependency glib-2

Notice that is STILL thinks that Linux-PAM is required for cyrus-

I even tried a completely clean install of Lunar, edited the 
cyrus-sasl module to completely remove Linux-PAM as even an 
optional depends, and still got the same result.
