The problem is in scotch, that changed all the binary names from
scotch_$binary to just $binary (see ).
The "gbase" in scotch is completely different than the one from the gbase
package. My first idea would be to just revert the gbase name change on
scotch, but looking at gbase on debian... It hasn't been updated, upstream
didn't release anything since 2007 and is now 404'd. No package depends on
it. Popcon shows only 74 people having it.
Shouldn't we just drom gbase from Debian, and add a Conflicts just to make
sure machines where gbase is already installed don't suffer from this?
