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.
