| I see texlive is requested by dblatex, which is only under "Recommends".
| If you don't need dblatex for asciidoc to work, you can run
| apt-get --no-install-recommends asciidoc
That did the trick. Thanks! (dblatex is a docbook(?)
backend, and isn't required for anything I am doing.)
| Alternatively, and more usefully in the long-run, you can use the
| "equivs" package to build a minimal .deb that will pretend to provide
| the dependency. [ ... ]
Interesting. I'll keep this in mind for the future.
thanks & cheers!
