Bug#30237: apt: 0.1.9 checks dependencies against packages.gz

Package: apt
Version: N/A

I downloaded the apt 0.1.9 sources and they compiled out of the box on
my hamm machine. I used "dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -us -uc" for
compiling. See the end for some parts of a "less apt_*.deb". 

I edited /etc/apt/sources.list for download from stable and frozen.
I run apt-get update and it downloads the packages files and complains
afterwards, that the dependencies of apt are not fullfilled (It wants
libstdc++2.9, though it is compiled with libstdc++2.8) when performing
the integrity check.

Apt should check dependencies of installed packages against their
respective dependencies and not against what is in the packages file.

For now, I bypass this problem by building a "myapt" package (I only had
to change one line in debian/rules for this) and installing this
instead of "apt".


P.S.: If I have got a /etc/apt/sources.list file: Will it be
overwritten on first installation of apt?
