lam4-dev also ships the manpages for LAM, so there are file conflicts
between mpich2-doc and lam4-dev, unfortunately. The solution would be to
move all the docs from lam4-dev to (say) lam4-doc.

But the LAM package is basically unmaintained, both in Debian and
upstream. Are you still using it? Have you considered moving to openmpi
or (now) mpich2?
