There were some packages, especially -dev packages, which didn't
upgrade cleanly for the latest point release. Those packages have now
been updated in squeeze-proposed-updates and I'm now able to install
GPE, XFCE4 & a full build environment to build libgpewidget all from
Emdebian Grip Squeeze (with squeeze-proposed-updates) and adding a
Debian squeeze source does not indicate any packages which would have
newer versions in Debian.

(With regard to the other thread about libpq-dev, that has been fixed
by the same changes.)

Now that involves 650 of the 3,000 packages in Emdebian, so there might
be a few others around, particularly -dev packages.

I'll leave the updates in squeeze-proposed-updates for a couple of
days. If anyone notices other packages which are out of step, please
let me know and then I can do one pull to make squeeze

To use the updates, add squeeze-proposed-updates to your apt sources:

deb http://www.emdebian.org/grip squeeze-proposed-updates main dev debug doc java

and/or to your multistrap config:

debootstrap=Emdebian Updates

components=main dev debug doc java

components=main dev debug doc java
