dpkg 1.0.6: upgrade dpkg before upgrading syslogd

I see that sysklogd - with a K - has been released again.  I added the
code to copy conffiles data across a few days ago, but hadn't made a
new release because I'm still working my way through quite a few
smallish TODO items.

When I've added the pre-dependency feature necessary for ELF migration
I'll make another release; when we've tested that in 1.0 for a while
I'll ask Ian M. to move it into the stable tree to get the new
features into people's systems in advance of them doing major

dpkg (1.0.6); priority=MEDIUM (HIGH to upgrade syslogd)

  * conffiles can now be taken over properly from one package by
    another which replaces it.  (Bug#1482.)
  * dpkg will not deconfigure essential packages when --auto-deconfigure
    is set (this bug was fairly unlikely ever to be exercised).

  * dpkg checks for the presence of certain important programs on the PATH.
  * dselect is now more informative when a dependency is missing, saying
    "<package> does not appear to be available".  (Bug#1642, 1705).

  * `make distclean' fixed; config.* &c removed from source archive.
  * lib/lock.c now uses fcntl rather than flock, for better portability.

  * `Package_Revision: 0' removed from control file.
  * Some inaccuracies and bad formatting in various messages corrected.
