Can you use alien to convert a gts rpm to a deb ?

  Graphviz's sfdp is seriuosly crippled without a triangulation library

Status in graphviz package in Ubuntu:
Status in graphviz package in Debian:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  The Graphviz package is built --without-gts. This is bad news for
  sfdp, which complains “Error: remove_overlap: Graphviz not built with
  triangulation library” and fails to produce the beautiful output it
  creates when compiled --with-gts.

  I saw no real justification for this setting, other than a note from
  2008 saying that the flag was added to prevent GTS from being linked
  in “for now”.

  It's been nearly eight years... maybe time to reconsider?
