Thanks a lot! The problem (at least, I think...) was that update-alternatives
(which is in the static dpkg package) was a /usr/local/bin/perl (!!!) script.
I don't know how this could have happened (didn't compile myself), but
Raphaels version which is now in upgrade-i386/ does just have /usr/bin/perl,
as it should be. Same for install-info.

So, you may try again with the "new" dpkg package; this shouldn't break. (At
least, not on those points ;-)
