Impossible dependency: slang1-dev vs. slang1-utf8-dev


libopenh323-dev depends on libpt-dev
libpt-dev depends on libsdl1.2-dev
libsdl1.2-dev depends on aalib1-dev
aalib1-dev depends on slang-dev

libnewt-dev depends on slang-utf8-dev

slang-utf8-dev conflicts with slang-dev

As a result, libopenh323-dev and libnewt-dev are not installable
simultaneously. This is a RC problem.

Question: Does it make sense for a -dev package in general, or (at
least) aalib1-dev or libnewt-dev, to depend on slang-utf8-dev|slang-dev?

If not, should there be a separate libnewt-utf8-dev package? If not,
might it be possible to have aalib1-dev use slang-utf8-dev? If neither,
how should this be resolved?

[ Cc'd to the developers in question, who might not be reading -devel. ]
