One of the problems with Ubuntu is its stubbornness. This bug

(which was only to make Ubuntu's dependency system work since
was dropped/replaced with
over the years). It's a shame that Ubuntu doesn't provide more attention to the details.
The fix is to rebuild the
package (at least in 12.04) and replace the dependencies of
. It's simple and works flawlessly. Ahh ... yet another reason to revert back to Debian.
