Interesting.  According to packages.debian.org it's really not in 
stable..  Thats strange I could have sworn I was using it from the 
official sources back in the potato days...  Right now it's only in 
unstable..  Maybe it got removed somewhere along the way.

I would recommend aptitude as a dselect replacement anyway..
