How to get rid of tex-common with an equivs built texlive-dummy?

in order to install LyX without installing Ubuntu's TeXLive 2007 I
built a texlive-dummy package with equivs. The texlive.ctl has the
following content in "Provides":

dvipdfmx, dvipng, lacheck, latex-beamer, latex-xcolor, pgf,
preview-latex-style, psutils, tex-common, texlive-base,
texlive-base-bin, texlive-base-bin-doc, texlive-common,
texlive-doc-base, texlive-extra-utils, texlive-fonts-recommended,
texlive-fonts-recommended-doc, texlive-generic-extra,
texlive-generic-recommended, texlive-humanities,
texlive-humanities-doc, texlive-latex-base, texlive-latex-base-doc,
texlive-latex-extra, texlive-latex-extra-doc,
texlive-latex-recommended, texlive-latex-recommended-doc,
texlive-pictures, texlive-pictures-doc, texlive-pstricks,
texlive-pstricks-doc, tipa

As you can see it contains tex-common. But after the installation of
texlive-dummy APT still wants to install tex-common when asked to
install LyX. What did I miss?
