> I don't understand. The dependency is satisfied by sid's binutils:
.._required_, yes, and this required dependency in your experimental
linux-tools-2.6.36 breaks my satisfaction when we wanna experiment
with experimental binutils, compilers etc on experimental kernel etc
builds to help find real bugs. ;o)
..my suggestion is satisfy the dependency with "one of Sid's or
Experimental's" binutils, or even "one or 2 or 3 or more", and
not the current "Sid Only Basta!!!".
.."if" my smoke tests crashes, I still get to keep the bits,
so I can go "Oh Horror!!! Downgrade to Sid!!!". ;o)

Scenarios always come in sets of three:
best case, worst case, and just in case.
