Hi All,
            I want to know whether we are having REPLACES variable just 
like CONFLICTS variable in the Makefile ? 

            I have two packages A and B. Package A is already installed. 
I want to install package B which should automatically replace the 
package A. In case, if there is no REPLACES variable,  is there any 
other way to do this ?
