Riddle me this: Why doesn't Mac OS X have any problems with dependencies? Why can't the Haiku developers just tell application developers that libraries should be included in application bundles?

BeOS does have dependency problems that Haiku inherits. BeOS was also made at a time when shared libraries made sense. If you're on a 28.8k modem with less than a gig of hard disk space, sharing dependencies is an attractive prospect.

It's not 1995 anymore, though, and you'll struggle to find anyone that cares that they have a dozen copies of Qt on their PC.
