oookay.... so is the "correct" behaviour now, to replace libxaw-dev, with
a specific version, eg libxaw6-dev ?

Sfunny.. I thought my package ORIGINALLY did that, and then I got a "bug"
filed against it a year or three back, that it should instead depend on the
virtual package. Most irritating. Consistancy in policy should be a
desirable feature.
