Thats exactly what I got, around 200 of them.  And its quasi-random, I 
ran it again on my raspian pi4b with a |wc -l and only got 87 next time.

I think the armhf and arm64 versions have a bug. The machine is otherwise 
fine and could be carveing steel 2 or 3 minutes after I got to it.  
Takes that long to properly chuck up a workpiece.

That is not a commonly used option, but I used it because dpkg reported 
an incomplete quite a few packages update this morning and I was looking 
for the cause. But a sudo -E synaptic said its all fine, no errors, no 
fix-brokens etc.

So that -V option, and the dh dependency checker both need a wee bit of 

The dependency checker missed some python stuff needed to build linuxcnc 
from github, but I found all that 3 or 4 months back.  That particular 
rpi4 is a full blown armhf development system with a realtime kernel in 
addition to running a 70 yo sheldon lathe with linuxcnc.
