For some reason, k3b will not build natively under Jaunty, as it cannot
find ffmpeg (which is seemingly not even available in Jaunty?) and the
ARtS header files.  I am therefore creating those wrapper packages to make
the Intrepid version installable as a stopgap measure.  You grabbed an old
version of the virtual libdvdread3 package that was broken; if you tried
it again it would probably work.

I will create a wrapper for libavcodec51 --> libavcodec52 today or tommorrow.
