Mainline HTTP/2 and Dependencies?

Being ever vigilant downstream, it was asked of me as the packaging
maintainer for Ubuntu's nginx package by the Ubuntu Security Team and
the Server Team contact at Canonical whether HTTP/2 has any external
dependencies, such as 'libnghttp2', to make HTTP/2 work here in NGINX.

As far as I know, there are no external dependencies other than an SSL
library (such as an OpenSSL library, with ALPN TLS support), and the
HTTP/2 implementation done by NGINX is in fact NGINX's implementation
and does not rely on the external implementations in other libraries.  I
would, however, like a confirmation on this.

Can someone please confirm whether what I think I know is in fact the case?
