[maemo-users] hildon-libs0 - osso-af conflict

I was just trying to install vncviewer on OS2008 on my N810. Along the 
way dpkg said there was a conflict between hildon-libs0 and osso-af, but 
when I look at the package lists they are orthogonal (osso-af is a 
metapackage with no installed files; the docs are stripped).

I forced it in. Is there any reason I should not have ?

# apt-get install vncviewer  (from extras/bora)
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
   vncviewer: Depends: hildon-libs0 (>= 0.14.11-1) but it is not going to be installed
E: Broken packages

# dpkg -i hildon-libs0_0.14.11-1_armel.deb
  osso-af conflicts with hildon-libs0

# dpkg -i vncviewer_0.6_armel.deb
  vncviewer depends on hildon-libs0 (>= 0.14.11-1); however:
   Package hildon-libs0 is not installed.
  vncviewer depends on libdbus-1-2 (>= 0.61); however:
   Package libdbus-1-2 is not installed.

# vncviewer
vncviewer: error while loading shared libraries: libhildonwidgets.so.0:

# dpkg --force-conflicts -i hildon-libs0_0.14.11-1_armel.deb
