pacdep 1.1.0: Dependency path

A new version of pacdep is out, fixing optional dependencies not working since pacman 4.1.0, and introducing a new option to show the "dependency path" for each package, inspired by karol's request for pactree.

Using option --show-path will show the (shorter) "dependency path" for each of the listed dependency, that is showing why a dependency is there, up to the main package.

This can be useful to understand why a dependency is listed, if it appears as dependency of a dependency of yet another dependency of the main package.

For example, if one wonders why ncurses appears as (shared) dependency as kalu, a quick pacdep -Ps kalu would provider the answer:

ncurses      9.75 MiB <- readline <- js <- polkit <- kalu
