Could be recommends at the very best, but even that does not quite fit the situation...

Since my systems have k-d-t but not u-d-t I can not get myself to
consider recommends a sensible relation. Suggests is the only one left,
and it's definition fits the case at hand quite well:

Then again what's the use since suggests does not install udt anyway,
which is what is requested. Thoughts?
