Bug#1719: hyperlatex recommends ghostscript - nonexistent package

Package: hyperlatex
Version: 1.3-4

The `hyperlatex' package says:
 recommends: latex, ghostscript, giftrans, pbmplus

However, there is no package `ghostscript', nor does any package
Provide `ghostscript'.  (Packages-Master of the 21st of October,

This means that when you select hyperlatex in dselect you get a
conflict/dependency resolution screen which is supposed to warn you
about this potential problem (remember that a Recommends line is quite
a strong recommendation).

(Currently - dpkg 1.0.5 - the conflict/dependency resolution screen is
less informative than it might be; I intend to improve this, but the
problem will not go away until the bad recommendation is fixed.)
