By the way, what is it supposed to happen in such a case ? What kind of
Recommends will dpkg-shlibdeps generate when shlibs return something
like libxxxx >= version ?
And how do apt/dpkg consider such Recommends ? I've always assumed they
would not complain if unadequate versions of these recommends would be
installed, and always added conflicts, but I know no way of generating
these automagically. And I never checked what they actually do.
Does anyone know ?
