This is the version in sid, and it works only on sid.  It will migrate
to squeeze with the rest of the GNUstep stack when the transition is
complete (i.e. when all GNUstep packages get rebuilt against the new
GNUstep libraries).

projectcenter.app_0.5.0~20080704-1+b1_amd64.deb was built in a sid
chroot; the buildd itself has Lenny installed but it doesn't matter.

This should not happen in sid.

$ dpkg -L binutils | grep libbfd

Is this a manually built package?  Here is the last build log of the
binNMU on amd64:


The binutils version is 2.19.1-1, how it ends up loading the lenny
version of the library on your (sid) machine?  I'm confused.
