Apt Broken Package Problems

I am using Sid 2.6.7 and I seem to be having some broken package
problems.  The funny thing is that this is a week old, and noone else
seems to have submitted a bug report.  This has completely handicapped
apt, so I can not use it right now.  Below is the return of apt-get
install -f

Is it a broken package, or somthing else?
