My mistake, actually. I hadn't realized the situation had been so
messed up.

There should not be a gconv-modules package on ftp.debian.org at all;
that package is now provided by the locales package, and is out of

I had finagled the depends on GTK, but I didn't remove gconv-modules,
as that's what the libc maintainer told me to do (since gconv-modules
is now provided by locales.)

But the old gconv-modules package, which is useless, has not
been removed from the archives. I had thought that it had been,
but I was mistaken.
