Well, it says GNU Smalltalk on the description line, so you'd be fine
in dselect, but you might want to use dpkg or some other tool that
more easily works with package names.  Besides, it's probably best to
conserve 3-letter acronyms - especially ones starting with 'g'.  I'll
change it to "gnu-smalltalk".
