Should be batik; likewise needs Java.

Conflicts with perl (>> 5.8). I've filed a bug.

Dependency snes9x-x is missing on a number of architectures.

> stardict/2.4.3-1

Hardcodes library dependency list rather than using ${shlibs:Depends}.
The dependency on libc6 breaks alpha and ia64. I've filed a bug.

Probably candidates for contrib overrides, when they're implemented.

Built on s390 despite its lack of xserver-xfree86. Anyone?

All hinted in various ways. I'm not sure how r-base and sablevm will
work; we'll see.

The dependency explains why they render themselves uninstallable; I'll
ignore these unless they continue to have problems after the new r-base
is promoted.
