Hint: use apt-ftparchive. It's a lot tidier.

Try manually installing abc, if necessary explicitly setting the version to
yours (so "apt-get install abc=1.1cvs01012006"). I'm willing to make a
small wager that it won't install, probably due to dependency problems or
conflicts (say, something else on your machine depends on abc (<< 1.1), or
your abc package depends on a newer library version, because it was built in
the wrong chroot). Fix that and the problem magically goes away.
