What version of Wing is this?  I'm surprised it depends on libpango... I'm fairly sure we don't use that.  Also, I'm fairly sure this is just gratuitous dist-to-dist package renaming, which is the reason Wing tries to depend on nothing except for glibc and a few other things at the low level.  In practice, unfortunately, this is practically a full time job to get right.  I wish Linux would get its act together in this regard.In any case, I suspect the solution is to force dpkg to ignore dependencies with the --ignore-dependencies flag or --force-depends although the latter might cause problems later as mentioned in https://superuser.com/questions/739274/ignore-all-dependencies-for-a-specific-package-with-apt-getPlease let us know if this does not help.
