Bug#342193: java-package: incorrect "Depends:" in generated .deb

Package: java-package
Version: 0.27
Severity: important

the "Depends:" line in the generated .deb incorrectly ties the JVM to the specific versions of
libraries installed on the machine used to generate the package. Sun go out of their way to
make their JVM run on anything, but i couldn't find any way short of editing
/usr/share/java-package/j2sdk.sh to replace the line:

Depends: \${shlibs:Depends}



to remove the unnecessarily-specific dependencies.
