Dependancies of junk in /usr/local/
I've got a couple of useful programs installed in /usr/local/ on my
Woody system, and they depend on some junk in oldlibs to run. For
example, Wordperfect 8 needs xlib6 and xpm4.7. Is there any way to
tell apt/dpkg that I have things that depend on these, so that I'll get
a warning if I try to uninstall them? I always have to be very careful
while I'm using orphaner not to break my local stuff.
I looked at virtual packages, but it seems that they are for groups of
similar things. (eg apache/boa/thttpd are all web servers).
I'm not subbed to this list, so please cc me directly.
