Dear Martin,

Thanks for pointing this problem out to me.  I am new at packaging and
made several similar errors in other packages as well at first.  I have
followed your advice and closed down all the old packages and opened
a new one called libsvm.  I have also renamed libsvm0-dev to libsvm-dev.
Thanks for the info!  Cheers,

Rudi Cilibrasi
