If you go to /var/lib/dpkg, you will find a file called status. This
appears to be how dselect keeps track of what's installed/configured/etc.
The format is pretty self explanitory, so you should be able to hack the
status line of the package in question, "fooling" dselect into thinking it
installed the package.
