I am the maintainer for the bioperl and bioperl-run packages for fink.
When trying to install bioperl-run using the fink package, a user
reported the following error:
/usr/bin/sudo /sw/bin/fink update bioperl-pm581
Information about 3842 packages read in 2 seconds.
The following package will be installed or updated:

which is also in package bioperl-run-pm581

Errors were encountered while processing:
### execution of dpkg failed, exit code 1
Failed: can't install package bioperl-pm581-1.4-4
So what happens is that the file .packlist gets installed both by
bioperl and bioperl-run in the same location. Is it safe to not install
.packlist to avoid this conflict? If not, is there another way around
this to fix this?
