The depends on Dynamips was bumped as features were introduced into
dynamips since 0.2.8 that are used by GNS3... the depends is there for a
good reason (and is hardcoded in the control as opposed to automatically
filled, for this reason)

CC'ing Aron (who uploaded the GNS3 backport for me) - would you be able
to build and upload Dynamips?

As a side note... I am the maintainer for both of these packages in
Debian and work very closely with the upstream on development and
bug-fixing as well as using them myself.
