This seems to work using straight apt, but I get this when trying to get
gcc for the HURD.
obfuscation:/home/baumannd# export APT_CONFIG=/var/local/apt-hurd/apt.conf
obfuscation:/home/baumannd# apt-get install gcc

You might want to run `apt-get -f install' to correct these:
Sorry, but the following packages have unmet dependencies:
bsdutils: Depends: sysvinit (>= 2.59-2) but it is not installable
gcc: Depends: cpp (>= 1:2.95.2-10) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: cpp (< 1:2.95.3) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: binutils (>= 126.96.36.199.12) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
where's sysvinit? (I know you have been talking about different sysvinit
methods) and how do I get around this, do I just force things?
