Bug#1716: dvipsk recommends psfonts - nonexistent package

Package: dvipsk
Version: 5.58f-3

The `dvipsk' package says:
 recommends: psfonts

However, there is no package `psfonts', nor does any package Provide
`psfonts'.  (Packages-Master of the 21st of October, 00:49GMT.)

This means that when you select dvipsk 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.)
