After my investigation, I can reproduce your situation and find
that a priority of libfreeamp-alsa is optional though priorities
of ALSA packages are extra. 

To check whether this information is correct, you can change the
following section in your


Package: libfreeamp-alsa
Version: 2.0.6-2
Priority: optional


Package: libfreeamp-alsa
Version: 2.0.6-2
Priority: extra

and do apt-get dist-upgrade.

Whether or not, this is a policy violation. A priority of libfreeamp-alsa
should be extra.
