> apache            33362  apache: apache 1.3.3-6 depends on apache-common (&gt;= 1.3.4) [0]  (Johnie Ingram <johnie@debian.org>)

This was a simple typo in the control file which was fixed in version
1.3.3-7, currently sitting in Incoming.  Apache will not even install
without it.

There was a suggestion some while back to search the .orig files for a
gettext.c file, or something like that.  Did anyone ever do this?  It
could be a serious security hole, so this should be done asap by
someone with the expertise to do so.

Hasn't this been fixed by the new base upgrade package or the like?  I
remember discussions on -devel about how to do it.
