There seem to still be some false positives here.  pam is on the list
because of a build-dependency on libdb-dev, freetds and unixodbc are there
because of a build-dependency on libreadline-dev.  Both of these are
metapackages that pull in version-specific -dev packages.  So something
seems to be wrong with the detection of "empty" packages yet?

Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
