Thank you Jason! slapt-get seems to work fine now, but I'm getting segfaults
with gslapt whenever I mark any package for removal.

Also, I've found a couple of strings in gslapt that are not being
translated, although they are included in the .po files. The first one is:
"Need to get %.0f%s of archives."
and the other one:
"After unpacking %.0f%s disk space will be freed."
both visible at the "Summary" window when installing/upgrading packages.

And I think I have a feature request concerning alternative dependencies.
Now, if none of the alternative dependencies are installed, the first one in
the list is pulled. Could this be changed so that the smaller package gets
installed instead? I think this is what most people would want. What do you
