Bug#613484: /usr/bin/ecl is not installed

Control: tags -1 + patch


the problem is a faulty postrm script that removes /usr/bin/ecl on
upgrade after the new files are unpacked, see [1]. A workaround is to
remove ecl and then install it again. The attached patch fixes the
postrm script but since the old postrm script is run on upgrade
everybody upgrading to a new version which includes this patch would
still end up without /usr/bin/ecl. After a second update everything
would be fine. I'm not sure if one should go further into complicated
maintainer script constructions to solve this issue.
