Yep - that's because the Dell package would need to depend on 
smbios-utils OR libsmbios-bin if it were to be Debian compatible....  It 
should be pretty easy for someone from Dell to test this on one of their 
Ubuntu systems just by installing a Debian squeeze chroot using 
debootstrap, and testing using schroot...
