Dependency problem with whiptail

I think this is an old problem, but I'm not sure who the word should go to.
Package "whiptail" installs fine on i386 but is held back on alpha because 
alpha has libc6.1 and i386 has libc6.  Is this just a problem in labelling the 
dependency?  Who should be notified?

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:
