Bug#1177: seyon has bad control file

Package: seyon
Version: 2.14c

It is not possible to install Seyon (with any non-prehistoric version
of dpkg).  This package should be withdrawn ASAP.  It probably makes
the non-free/Packages file invalid, for starters.

dpkg: error processing ./nonfree-binary/seyon-2.14c.deb (--install):
 parse error, in file `/var/lib/dpkg/tmp.ci/control' near line 5 package `seyon':
 `Depends' field, syntax error after reference to package `xbase1'
