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 ;-)

While I haven't found anything yet (dispite the confusion of the Packages

you that some ORed dependencies are not identified, causing problems when
they are not provided, as it reports them satisfied when they are not.
