Well, if you explicitly tell apt to install packages from a given
source, then you should not be surprised that it does exactly what you say.
Perhaps the Debian installer created that file, because it does not
exist at all on my ex-Woody-upgraded-to-Sarge machine.
Either you can comment out or remove this line in apt.conf, so the lines in the
sources.list file Just Work<tm>.
Or use the -t option with apt-get, to override the apt.conf setting, like:
apt-get -t sarge install chicken
Symlinking is no option, because ``stable'' is already symlinked to

I'm planning to produced Ubuntu packages as soon as I have a machine
working with Ubuntu Breezy. I'm also making a list of other Debian based
distributions, to see if I can produce packages for them too.
