Package: hdf4-tools
Version: 4.1r4-20
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

hdf4-tools is uninstallable because it provides libhdf4g-run but
(naturally) depends on libhdf4g, which declares an unversioned
conflict on libhdf4g-run.  Could you please reconcile this, either by
versioning the library package's conflict(*), dropping it altogether,
or dropping the Provides: declaration?


(*) Because Provides: declarations lack version information, dpkg
    never treats them as matching versioned package specifications,
    even trivial ones like libhdf4g-run (>= 0).
