Can you indicate the packages that are not required?

There are two packages built: with and without TLS[3] support.

As far as I know, on the systems that use dash, /bin/sh is a symlink to 
dash. Anyway, it's true that some scripts are not compliant with dash. 
Just yesterday I committed a fix for opensipsdbctl tool in order to 
solve this issue. I'll dig into more problems today.

The Python module is not built because it is still in Alpha state.
