I expect it is because 'gprbuild' was a 'make dependency' (ie only 
required to build the alire package, not to run it). So no package 
actively depends on 'gprbuild'. It has no parent dependencies, so is an 
'orphan' and could be deleted w/o impacting any packages.

(I think there is a pacman command to delete all orphan packages to free 
up disk space and reduce clutter.)
