Ah, indeed, it seems that the version of libsasl2-gssapi-mit in the archive
for etch/lenny is not from the cyrus-sasl2-mit source package, which means
cyrus-sasl2-mit provides only one obsolete binary package currently and is
not uploadable in its current state -- so yes, this should definitely be
removed from the archive.
