why can't I update libg2c0

hmm ... just took another look at the package descriptions. It seems
that the problem is libg2c0. How come this still depends on an older

its older version during every upgrade. So, what's the deal with libg2c0?
Looks like support for the old legacy compilers is reaching its end of
You might consider transitioning to something newer, if possible.
Ah, right. I went over the bug report and I must say the original
submitter has a valid point.
I am currently using this compiler to interface my C++ code with some
FORTRAN libraries which I compile only occasionally. Looks like using
gfortran for that might possible give problems or be noisy.
So, based no this, I am going to hold gcc-3.4.6 for now.
Thanks for the pointer, it cleared up my aptitude doubts perfectly.
