Re: Working on dpkg-checkbuilddeps support for dpkg-cross

Oh, of course :)

A very stupid 'keepdeps' and 'replacedeps' by rewrite_dependencies().

At first it was important to get a version working. Yes, this stupid
implementation may lead to more maintership.
The idear with determining the section of a package is a good I think.
Using libapt-pkg-perl it should be easy get it working.

I'm not sure but I will consider that next time.
