It means that upgrading libgtk 1.2 would *also* upgrade other
packages, *or* would remove packages. You can do "sudo ap-get -S
install libgtk1.2". This is a simulated install, and would tell you
what else would be installed, or what would be removed, if you just
did :sudo apt-get install libgtk1.2".
BTW, I like using "aptitude" rather than "apt-get", myself, but you'll
probably end up with the same effect.
