This is caused by dh_installchangelogs calling `lynx -dump', presumably to
convert the HTML to plain text. A selection of other packages are similarly
afflicted. I don't know why it's just suddenly come to the fore - even on my
i386 potato machine, this fails:
$ TERM=dumb lynx -dump http://www.debian.org/
Your terminal lacks the ability to clear the screen or position the cursor.
I don't actually believe that `-dump' requires anything much of the terminal,
so this seems like a bug in lynx. By way of a workaround, I've hacked
dh_installchangelogs on Europa to claim it has a vt100 terminal. If anybody
is at a loose end it might be worth filing a bug report for lynx.
