[Pkg-octave-devel] Bug#523496: octave3.0-headers: tight gcc dependencies incorrect

Package: octave3.0-headers
Version: 1:3.0.5-1
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable (uninstallable)

octave3.0-headers now aims to depend on exact upstream gcc versions,
but its approach is somewhat off, in that the dependencies are on
metapackages that have epochs and don't depend so tightly on the
actual compiler packages.  As such, I believe you'll need to generate
dependencies along the following lines:

   gcc (>= 4:4.3), gcc (<< 4:4.4), gcc-4.3 (>= 4.3.3), gcc-4.3 (<< 4.3.4)

and likewise for g++ and gfortran.

Could you please fix the dependencies, which currently leave the
package uninstallable due to the epoch mismatch?
