The issue is the delivery of /etc/services entries. I'll append the relevant,
though very old, entry from the amanda changelog for Debian...
If you manually take care of getting the right entries in /etc/services, you
should be fine doing a force-depends to override the netbase dependency.
But, upgrade to hamm for greatest satisfaction... :-)
amanda (184.108.40.206-2.1) unstable; urgency=low
* non-maintainer release (never actually uploaded)
* make amanda and amanda-client depend on netbase (>=3.03) for /etc/services
entries. Remove /etc/services mashing from postinst. Closes bugs 12847,
* make amanda depend on amanda-client. This is the easiest way to resolve
the overlapping files problem. It makes the assumption that if you're
running an amanda server, you'll want the client stuff anyway so you can
back up the server. Since the client package is small, this seems like a
better resolution than splitting out a third "common" package. Closes
bugs 11046, 11943.
* update all references to /etc/amandates and /etc/dumpdates to use
/var/lib/*dates, ala current Debian dump package. Closes bug 15586.
* pre-apply all the patches from the upstream archive, to simplify the
build process. Patches applied include: arithexc.diff,exclude2.diff,
longopt.diff, and srvcomp2.diff. Closes bug 13151, 13796.
* convert rules file to use debhelper.
