Package: mpg321

Files are installed by mpg321 which allow it to be run as mpg123 as well. These
files are not known by the package system. For example:

root@farpoint:~# dpkg -s mpg123
Package: mpg123
Status: purge ok not-installed
root@farpoint:~# ls /usr/bin/mpg123
ls: /usr/bin/mpg123: No such file or directory
root@farpoint:~# apt-get --reinstall install mpg321
root@farpoint:~# ls /usr/bin/mpg123
root@farpoint:~# dpkg -S mpg123
dpkg: *mpg123* not found.

I'm not sure this is really a bug, but my expectation was that the "dpkg -S"
command would list mpg321 as the owner of the "*mpg123*" files.

I'm using Debian GNU/Linux unstable with self-compiled kernel and libc6

Not a bug in my opinion. Or in any case, not a bug in mpg321.

Feel free to open a new bug or reassign this one. Regarding dpkg
checking alternatives: I don't really see a strong argument in favour
of it, but again, feel free to open a bug against dpkg about it.

Closing for now, thanks :)
