    I'm having trouble installing both ncl and ncarg using fink. It doesn't
    matter which one I attempt to install first, the second one will not
    install correctly.

    For example, I installed ncarg ('fink install ncarg'). This installed
    with no errors and I was able to run the example script and produce a
    plot. Then I tried to install ncl ('fink install ncl') and got the
    following error messages:

    > fink install ncl
    sudo /sw/bin/fink install ncl
    Information about 1277 packages read in 1 seconds.

    The following package will be installed or updated:
    dpkg -i
    Selecting previously deselected package ncl.
    (Reading database ... 5355 files and directories currently installed.)
    Unpacking ncl (from .../ncl_4.2.0.a028-1_darwin-powerpc.deb) ...
    dpkg: error processing
     trying to overwrite `/sw/lib/ncarg/ngwww/ngurl', which is also in
    package ncarg
    Errors were encountered while processing:
    ### execution of dpkg failed, exit code 1
    Failed: can't install package ncl-4.2.0.a028-1


    Does anyone know of this problem and a solution?

    Thank you,
