Actually "--force-conflicts" should not be needed for properly
installing 'equivs'.  I always use "--install" only without any
trouble.  But if it does need such measures than it is either
misconfigured by the person having built it or it simply contains a
bug still unknown to me.  If the latter is the case i'd be glad about
hints and fixes!
