Package: mc
Version: 2:4.7.0-pre1-3
Severity: important

Aptitude tries to install many x11 stuff when installing mc with "recommended enabled" option (aptitude default in squeeze).
It looks like x11 dependency is caused by imagemagick.

Please, remove imagemagick from mc recommends.

The following NEW packages will be installed:
