Well, yes.  And that's exactly why, for the time being, I have decided to do without 
tc-native.  The first line I saw in the tc-native source README was something like "to 
build, you may need OpenSSL xx .." and then I started getting cold feet, remembering my 
previous experiences going along the dependencies-from-hell route umpteen times before.
And in this case, we're talking indeed about a system which already has all those nice 
symlinks all over the place..
What is it he said ? "once you give in to the dark side of the Force, forever dominate you

it will.."
If apt-get is the dark side, then I guess I'm already on Darth's side.
