wajig showinstall imlib11
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done

Inst libungif4g [4.1.4-5] (4.1.6-3 Debian:unstable) 
Inst libgif4 (4.1.6-3 Debian:unstable)
Inst imlib11 [1.9.15-5] (1.9.15-6 Debian:unstable)
Conf libgif4 (4.1.6-3 Debian:unstable)
Conf libungif4g (4.1.6-3 Debian:unstable)
Conf imlib11 (1.9.15-6 Debian:unstable)
