Bug#214503: autopartkit: FTBFS: incorrect dependency?
I'm not too familiar with arcane packaging rules, but here's
The builddeps complained that it the dependency for
libdebconfclient-dev (>= 0.43) was unsatisfied.
I tried apt-get install libdebconfclient-dev, it said this was a
virtual package and I should instead pick libdebconfclient0-dev 0.47.
I said apt-get install libdebconfclient0-dev and it said the
current installed version was the most current (0.47).
I then tried make again, and it again complained that it needed
libdebconfclient-dev (>= 0.43).
I think the issue is that a version > 0.43 has been specified on a
virtual package, which really has no version number.
When I substituted libdebconfclient0-dev (>= 0.43) in the control
file, it went ahead and I got the missing configure file bug which had
already been reported.

Description: Automatically Partition Hard Drives (unsafe)
This module will automatically partition the harddrive on which you wish
to install Debian GNU/Linux. At the moment, it will destroy all data on
all partitions, but in the future, safe resizing of FAT partitions is

architecture supported by libparted.
