you already found it :-)

sadly you also found out, that often also problems in dependend packages are 
found.

a.) file a bug against the dependend package 
b.) use --warn-on-others which should make piuparts not complain about 
problems in dependent packages. It doesn't and cannot work for all cases.
c.) use --no-symlinks to disable this particular test.
d.) RTFM: http://piuparts.debian.org/doc/piuparts.1.html and 
http://piuparts.debian.org/doc/README.html

(in no particular order)


btw, what are you doing with python2.4? it's not in squeeze :)

cheers,
