Another thread make me understand. I built the package against
woody to get it in quicker, but the build deamons did not:
$ dpkg --info /org/ftp.debian.org/ftp/pool/contrib/j/jazip/jazip_0.33-2_alpha.deb
Depends: libc6.1 (>= 2.2.2-2), libforms0.88, xlibs (>= 4.0.1-11)
I'm guessing the required alpha version of libc6.1 is keeping this in
