Anyway, now that I've got it installed on my IA32 box (it's got broken deps
on powerpc :(, it doesn't seem to ever show anything about recommended or
suggested packages, though.  I like how dselect lets you see the raw package
info if you want to.  I read the man page and the online help but didn't see
anything about it.

Have you tried "apt-cache show <pkgname>"?
eg. "apt-cache show apt" or "apt-cache showpkg apt"
