broken apt-get

I have debian 3.0r1 installed and I have run into a problem with apt-get. If I run apt-get install this is what I get.

Reading Package Lists...
Building Dependency Tree...
You might want to run `apt-get -f install' to correct these.
Sorry, but the following packages have unmet dependencies:
libgnome32: Depends: gnome-bin (>= 1: but is installed
libgnomesupport0: Depends: gnome-bin (>= 1: but is installed
libgnomeui32: Depends: gnome-bin (>= 1: but is installed
libgnorba27: Depends: gnome-bin (>= 1: but is installed
libgnorbagtk0: Depends: gnome-bin (>= 1: but is installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.

After this if I do like it says and type apt-get -f install then this is what I get.
