The result with dpkg (1.16.7):
dpkg: regarding .../pool/pkgb_1_amd64.deb containing pkgb:
pkgb conflicts with foo:amd64
pkga provides foo and is present and installed.
Even more interesting, if I change this conflict to a depends dpkg happily
installs the package and dpkg --audit gives no indication that a dependency
is unsatisfied (same problem with depends if no architecture is specified).
Shouldn't provides be limited by the architecture their provider can work on?
Or did I miss something here?
