Re: Packages with bad dependencies

I'm keeping a copy of the script, btw.  I'm sure it'll come in handy :)

This has been recompiled and is on my site complete with patches for the
new util-linux.  It now depends on libc6.1.

This is still a mystery.  I haven't been able to find the source for it to
recompile.  It appears to have been an add-on for libc5 since it didn't
include libbsd compatibility (which is now supported by glibc in
semi-complete fashion).  I've found quite a few functions, though, that
are missing in glibc's compat lib, so I'll have to renew my search for

This also has been recompiled by Mike and is on my site.  It now depends
on libc6.1.

Argh!  Enough said :P

This one was also recompiled by Mike and the depends were fixed in the
process.  It's also on beezer.

As for the rest, I'll recompile as I get to them.  I should be able to
wipe out most of the stuff in a day or two, but may not be able to start
on them right away (I'm at 99% disk space used right now).
