Dependency on non-existent atlas3gf-base breaks experimental buildds

Hi list, Camm,

The cernlib package I just uploaded to experimental, to try to build it
against gfortran, is failing to build on all arches:


As far as I can tell, the reason is that the atlas3gf-base package does
not yet exist -- see the bottom of the build log for 2006.dfsg.2-6 for
ia64 (for instance).

Any workaround, or do I just have to wait until you upload
atlas3gf-base?  Unfortunately dpkg-dev no longer installs build-depends
in the order referenced in the control file.  It now installs them in
alphabetical order (see http://bugs.debian.org/457151 ), which means
that lapack3-dev is installed before refblas3-dev.  Hence lapack3-dev's
dependent package (lapack3gf) tries to pull in the nonexistent
atlas3gf-base, and now that dpkg re-orders Build-Depends, there is no
way to set the Build-Depends to get refblas3gf to be installed first in
order to prevent this from happening.

I must say this is a bit annoying...

best regards,
