Thanks for all the help guys.  I am now packaging aspell into aspell.deb,
aspell-dev.deb and aspell-doc.deb  Should all of them go into the same
section (text)?  Or should each of them go into seperate sections (aspell =
text, aspell-dev = devel, aspell-doc = doc)?  Different packages seem to do
different things about this.  enlightenment-doc, for example, is in section
x11.  postgresql-doc is in section doc while postgresql is in section misc.

Also, here is how I see the dependancies between the various pcakages -

Package		Dependencies
aspell		suggests aspell-doc
aspell-doc	depends aspell
aspell-dev	suggests aspell-doc and aspell
