E version-substvar-for-external-package

All reports of version-substvar-for-external-package for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

The first package has a relation on the second package using a dpkg-control substitution variable to generate the versioned part of the relation. However the second package is not built from this source package. Usually this means there is a mistake in the package name in this dependency.

Note that this warning can occur if the package name used in the relation contains a typo. In this case, correcting the typo should remove the warning.
