It turns out that cpp + cpp-symlinks is pulled by python3-pycparser.
It is really necessary to be as runtime dependency in recipe?
it a parser for C language written in python, so my initial thoughts
will be no. but there might be some dependencies on cpp, you might
have to dive a bit deeper.

I've run into this, and from memory cpp is needed if you intend to run
the parser, but since the dependency is added through
RDEPENDS_${PN}_class-target it gets installed even if you're only
running the parser on the host. I ended up removing the target
dependency due to license conflicts, and didn't encounter any problems.
right perhaps its fine to drop this and maybe add it as rsuggests or something
