This is true! Thanks!

The problem is that you can't tell this by looking at the Packages file,
probably because libstdc++2.8 does not have an entry in the override.slink

I suspect that this may cause dselect some problems ;-)

Thanks, I figured that out when I started grepping the Packages

While I haven't found anything yet (dispite the confusion of the Packages
file), but if you are using pkg-order to do this "checking" I should warn
you that some ORed dependencies are not identified, causing problems when
they are not provided, as it reports them satisfied when they are not.

The "non-US" problem is only going to get uglier. I sure wish my
government were more "enlightened".
