        In these cases I suggest that the doc packages be broken out,
 and only the doc package depends on teh binary packages. Voila! no
 circular depends.

        This was the reason for suggesting that there be a public
 investigation before allowing self build depends -- sometimes, you do
 not need any.

 There is none made so great, but he may both need the help and
 service, and stand in fear of the power and unkindness, even of the
 meanest of mortals. Seneca
