    I have a question about that. Currently, the Objective C packages of gcc are “broken” (that is, in their .deb dependencies, not _at all_ in their functionality!) and, as said, Apache w.r.t. php4.

    Currently, base is frozen.

    To be honest, I could imagine that e.g. objc belongs to the base system, and that nobody has as of yet reported (or at least fixed) the problem. So can it still be fixed? Or would such a fix mean breaking the “frozen” stage of the packages involved?

    (OK, it’s not that bright a question, but I’m just trying to get the idea of this. And yes, I should file bugs on this. But the problem with that is that I cannot configure Sendmail. Never could (never needed it). Most bug report tools need Sendmail. I consider that to be a bug, but some people claim that keeping a bug system hard to understand keeps the sillies from filing silly bugs, so hey, that’s my situation in short :)))
