There is no easy way to do that while just looking at Packages
files; the only reasonably accurrate way would be to run "file" on
suspect files (those in bin, or sbin directories, and possibly in
/usr/lib as well). That solution is unmangeably slow. (I have
complaints already that the pkg-nodep is too slow as it is).
We are all apt to believe what the world believes about us. --
