Apt and dpkg in sparc/potato WILL NOT install on sparc/slink. Maybe it will
run (wich I really doubt), but the dependencies are way wrong:

 apt: Depends: libc6 (>= 2.1.2), libstdc++2.10
 dpkg: Pre-Depends: libc6 (>= 2.1.2), libncurses5, libstdc++2.10

 libc6: Version: 2.0.105-2
 libstdc++2.10: not available      
 libncurses5: not available

So we REALLY need new packages to get a smooth upgrade. I'll inform the porter
lists separately as well, since this has VERY high priority.
