Bug#600852: Fail to read empty but gzipped Packages files

Package: apt
Version: 0.8.7
Severity: critical
Tags: d-i

During the build of Debian Installer we have the possibility to use
localudebs so a build/localudebs directory scanned and a Packages file
is generated for it.

In the case of an empty Packages file (gzipped) is used, APT fails to
read it and in this case breaking the whole building process of

Downgrading apt to 0.8.5 I was able to build d-i file so a change done
later then 0.8.5 has broken it.
