That's what I thought. Just thought I'd mention the problem. Perhaps when cron
is fixed, the bsdutils package should be bumped up a version, so that dselect
will automagically re-install it. Or maybe the cron postinst script should
spit out a message letting the user know that bsdutils should be updated.
