Add libselinux to the above command line.

Wow, apt seems to be quite confused by the depth of package
dependencies. I still wonder why apt-get dist-upgrade does not
work. Time to find a smart or yum solution.

name=Fedora Core 3 - i386 - ATrpms

to /etc/yum.conf

and having a "yum install apt" is faster ...
