In Debian, you would add "Replaces: libpam0" in your control file. If
you look at the BitBake docs, I think they have similar functionality.

It's misleading, because it's not that the package "Replaces" but rather
that it "Replaces" files from that package.


That sounds reasonable, but I can't find that keyword or a supporting bbclass to manage this in either OE or bitbake (I suspect this would be OE and not bitbake as bitbake is just a parser, and doesn't know anything about OE). So far, I'm still looking for a reproducible method. Next step, on to the OE message boards I guess.
