Bug#704998: hurd: Broken upgrade due to disappeared shared libraries

Package: hurd
Version: 20130226-2
Severity: serious


A dist-upgrade broke the system as the hurd package got upgraded
first, which made the shared libraries disappear, and when
hurd-libs0.3 was being unpacked tar failed to execute.

Any “Essential: yes” package needs to Pre-Depend at least on their
shared library dependencies to be able to be reliably unpacked (an any
other dependencies required for it to run at unpack time), the same
for pseudo-essential packages (like hurd-libs0.3 itself). It seems
this problem has always been present but only got visible with the
libs split.
