It just worked for me, when I tried it a while ago.  Perhaps I have some
extra repositories enabled.

libhildonfm2 comes from repository.maemo.org, but apt-cache policy
doesn't show me if that's the extras repository, or the SDK repository.

The monstrously-looking

  $ sudo apt-get install --print-uris -d --reinstall libhildonfm2 

command tells me it lives in


which seems to be the SDK repository.

Yes; if I disable the SDK repo, libhildonfm2 becomes non-installable any

I think packages in the Extras repository should not depend on packages
not available from Extras, to prevent exactly this kinds of problems.
On the other hand this requirement seems to require many packages to be
duplicated between the SDK and the Extras repositories.  I don't know
what's the official Nokia or Maemo community position on this issue.

And you won't -- libraries aren't supposed to clutter up the application
list, so they're hidden.  You can see them only if you enable red-pill
mode or use the command-line tools.

In my opinion, all unresolved dependency problems are packaging bugs.
