I believe boot-floppies package just depends on recode:
Depends: glibc-pic, slang1-pic, makedev (>=2.3.1-10), libnewt-dev,
libpopt-dev, zlib1g-dev, recode, make, gettext, slice, m4, lynx,
debiandoc-sgml (>= 1.1.19), man-db, libpaperg, tetex-bin, tetex-extra,
perl5, libwww-perl, pointerize, libgd1g-dev, bison, ash
So unless you are trying to build cvs version, you should be just unable to
install the package.
