I had libreadline5-dev | libreadline-dev, based on the premise
that the former would be a concrete package, and the latter not, but I
am now using
libreadline-dev | libreadline6-dev | libreadline5-dev
to be friendly to back porters (thus the prepend, not replace)
No matter what happens, there is always someone who knew it would.
