It's probably not a good idea but you can work around the issue like the Qt 
smart installer does - omit any non-base firmware dependencies, and use a 
loader. That way the install will succeed, and then via the loader you can 
apt-get/application-manager install whatever you need on the first run of the 
application. It's a horrible hack (and probably breaks a dozen Ovi rules and 
common sense along the way), but it might work.
