I need to install fcl which depends on libboost-dev. However, libboost-dev depends on libboost1.46-dev and it refuses to install because I have the newer libboost1.48-dev.
I have followed instructions in the answer to this question: apt and fixing incorect dependencies. However, I'm unable to run
debuild -uc -us successfully. This is the output:

I currently have libboost1.48-dev installed and other 1.48 boost packages.
This link shows the source of the libboost-dev error: http://www.ubuntuupdates.org/package/core/precise/main/base/libboost-dev
What can I do to fix this?
