Yes. I've noticed that too. I haven't looked into it though.
The gcc Packages description has been wacked for a while. It doesn't play
nicely with egcs64. I've been editing /var/lib/dpkg/status manually to
repair the conflict after each upgrade, which isn't something I really like
to be doing. I don't know if this is a related problem or not.
