Don't understand you here. For ocaml-lablgl certainly a clean
work-around would be to replace it with a dummy update temporarily, so
subsequent build jobs don't fail due to broken deps. Then a build of a
new ocaml-lablgl update would not fail either.

Staying at the topic, does anybody have a quick clue where these

  Provides: python
  Provides: ...
  Provides: perl
  Provides: gpg

come from?
