I suspect a bug here. I can only find 3 source packages which build-depend
on doxygen (korelib, nurbs++, vdkxdb). The corresponding binary packages
(libkore0, libkore-dev, libnurbs++-dev, libnurbs++1, libvdkxdb-dev,
libvdkxdb) have very few reverse dependencies, and though I haven't traced
them out completely, the packages involved aren't (at a glance) connected to
anything very essential. Perhaps a loop is involved?
