Re: Bug#11333: dependency problem in ssh?

My fault.  I failed to notice that ssh does not use shlibdeps when I added 
dynamic linking of gmp.

It has the dependency in 1.2.20-3 (been in Incoming for a while)

This would not have been so much of a problem, if we had a stable/unstable 
split in non-us, but we don't --- I think this is bad.

Especially since it means that I cannot upload ssh linked with libc6, since it 
will break Debian 1.3.1

BTW how do I use shlibdeps, but exclude one of the dependencies it comes up 
with ?  I need to do this because ssh-askpass is linked against some X 
libraries, but I don't want ssh to depend on xlib6, because it is perfectly 
usable without it.  What I'd like to do is use shlibdeps, but put xlib6 into a 
Suggests: line instead.

Cheers, Phil.
