Bug#586687: debian-installer: build scripts can use outdated packages

Quoting Jeremie Koenig (jk@jk.fr.eu.org):
> Package: debian-installer
> Severity: normal
> Tags: patch
> Usertags: gsoc2010
> Hello,
> (my earlier email to debian-boot did not attract any comment, I'm
> resubmitting this as a bug so as to document and keep track of it)
> The get-packages script from installer/build/util/ uses "sort | tail -1"
> to get the most recent version of a given udeb from apt.udeb/cache.
> This may cause images to be built with outdated udebs.
> The attached patch makes it use 'dpkg --compare-versions' instead.

I noticed your mail and was, at first glance, in agreement with your

Are there any objections to a commit of Jérémie's patch?
