A few months ago when I was working on the nginx & nginx-proxy charms I ended up with something very similar to that ( only using PHP instead of Ruby … ) and Yes a pre-req list of deps where I could have declaratively listed a need for the php5-cli in this case , before the install hook ran ( that really became a "boostrap" hook ).
