Bug#580481: dpkg-cross: please blacklist debconf, libc-bin, libc-dev-bin, debconf-2.0

Package: dpkg-cross
Version: 2.5.6
Severity: wishlist


  Later libc6 dependencies make dpkg-cross to fail on dependency mangling:

$ apt-cross -a armel -S unstable -m http://ftp.es.debian.org/debian -u
$ apt-cross -a armel -S unstable -m http://ftp.es.debian.org/debian -b libc6
$ dpkg -e libc6-armel-cross_2.10.2-7_all.deb
$ cat DEBIAN/control 
Package: libc6-armel-cross
Version: 2.10.2-7
Section: devel
Priority: extra
Architecture: all
Maintainer: GNU Libc Maintainers <debian-glibc@lists.debian.org>
Source: eglibc
Provides: glibc-2.10-1-armel-cross, libc6-armel-dcv1
Depends: libc-bin-armel-cross (= 2.10.2-7), debconf-armel-cross (>= 0.5) | debconf-2.0-armel-cross, libgcc1-armel-cross
Conflicts: tzdata-etch-armel-cross
Description: Embedded GNU C Library: Shared libraries (for cross-compiling)
 This package was generated by dpkg-cross for cross compiling.
 Contains the standard libraries that are used by nearly all programs on
 the system. This package includes shared versions of the standard C library
 and the standard math library, as well as many others.

At the moment thanks to exclude option this can be easily handled, but those dependencies might be nice to blacklist them if appropiate.
