That's not true. Installing a pseudo package is the right way. Such a  
package can reflect what has been installed on the system. In Fink  
these pseudo packages are called "system- 
<whatsoever>" (approximately: 'fink list | grep system-'). Once  
you've installed such a proxy, Fink has come free of old software.  
(In Fink you can also create local packages from an ordinary package  
description, a .info file. There you can remove dependencies that are  
not adequate, but *satisfied*.)
