Is mklivecd in the repositories? In that case, the dependencies would be resolved (unless they aren't in the repo).
As far as I'm aware, dependency hell is much worse than having to install dependencies manually. It usually amounts to a case where (for example) program A depends on program B, and program B depends on program A. Fixed by forcing an install, but some package managers break on this case (as far as I'm aware). I don't think true dependency hell has been much (any?) of a problem for a few years now.
^^I could be wrong.
