Hi Arnaud!

I think I didn't manage to state my request properly :-).

What I want to be able to do is for example:

apt-get install libglib2-ruby1.8-dbg

Currently when I do that I get:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Couldn't find package libglib2-ruby1.8-dbg

In the mean time, I'll use your build-it-myself instructions as a workaround.

  Cheers :-) //Johan
