Thanks. So if I do this for a held-back package and get something like -

Sorry, but the following packages have unmet dependencies:
  kde: Depends: kdebase-audiolibs but it is not going to be installed or
                kdebase3-audiolibs but it is not installable
E: Sorry, broken packages

Is the *best strategy* to do apt-get dist-upgrade?
