... because eg:

  $ aptitude download awk
  No candidate version found for awk

I just downloaded and had a look at apt-rdepends, and I'm a bit
confused by its output.  It doesn't appear to resolve meta-packages at
all, which would explain the above error, because awk is a
meta-package implemented by (eg) original-awk or gawk.
