[alpine-devel] abuild problem with dependency tracing for kernels

I have an urgent problem which im not really sure how to solve.

The problem is:

* dahdi-linux-grsec has linux-grsec-dev= as build dependency

* abuild looks searches aports tree for the directory that has the
linux-grsec-dev package (this is an awk script)

* the testing/linux-grsec has version and is returned as
the "owner" of linux-grsec

* abuild enters testing/linux-grsec dir, builds it and returns to

* abuild tries to install all the built dependencies but fails to
install linux-grsec-dev= (existing in main) since only the
linux-grsec in testting was built.

I'm not realy sure how to solve this. I think longtime solution is
move the build dependency tracing out from the shellcode and do that
in lua and do it smarter. That will require a lua function to compare
version numbers which ideally should be using

But I need to do something pretty soon or delete testing/linux-grsec
for now since the buildscripts are too stupid.


The core we are talking about is the deptrace() function in
