Summary:                    Package dependency errors
A number of packages have a dependency on the package "CSWfconfig", but as
near as I can tell, there is no package CSWfconfig.  There is a package
CSWfontconfig.  There is a package CSWfconfig-dev.  This package is a stub
that depends upon CSWfontconfig-dev.  I deduce from this that the package
CSWfconfig has been renamed CSWfontconfig.  There's a "stub" for the "-dev"
version, but not for the stable version.

I would think that either you would want to create a "stub" package for
CSWfconfig or update the prerequisites for the various packages that have a
dependency on it.

PS: It would be nice if your filenames and package names were more in sync.
 For example, the package CSWbdb47 is in the file 


I would recommend that the package name and base filename be EXACTLY the
same.  For example, the file could be named


Or the other way around.  Anyway, the point is, when you get an warning
about a dependency, make it easier to determine which file contains the
package you need.
