The mime-tools package currently build-depends on (among other things)
perl-modules (>= 5.10) | libfile-temp-perl (>= 0.18). There is, however, no
real package in the archive named 'libfile-temp-perl' in etch or later, so
this alternative is altogether spurious for packages in lenny and beyond
since it's not even useful for backports.
In addition, in Ubuntu the alternative has caused build failures because of
some differences in Ubuntu vs. Debian buildd infrastructure, so the attached
patch is currently being carried as a diff to mime-tools there. It would be
appreciated if you could apply this patch, to let the Ubuntu package get
back in sync.
Steve Langasek Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer to set it on, and I can move the world.
