Damn damn and damn, ...

i just tried installing ocaml-base-3.06-13, and it worked, altough i had
lablgl installed, which depends on ocaml-base-3.06, and this is no more
provided by any package. I tried then reinstalling liblablgl-ocaml, and
there it worked, complaining about not finding ocaml-base-3.06.

So we are facing a bug in dpkg, which will happily upgrade a package
without checking for virtual dependencies. I will go fill a bug against
dpkg, but have not much hope it will change a thing.

with a bit of luck, apt-get is more advanced here, i will do some test.
