dpkg-hold - mark packages as `hold' to prevent installation
marks package(s) to be held.
It achieves this by running `dpkg --set-selections' and piping in the package
name(s) followed by `hold'.
NOTE: This program does not install, remove, purge any package. It ONLY sets the
status of the package. Any actual removal or purging is done the next time
dselect, apt-get, aptitude, etc are run.
