Bug#2215: gpm postinst

Package: gpm
Version: 1.00-11

The postinst for gpm builds the /etc/init.d/gpm script.  Upgrading gpm
overwrites any changes to a perviously generated version of this file.

I have to manually make changes to this file to get gpm to work with my
mouse.  These changes get obliterated when I reinstall/upgrade gpm.

The postinst of gpm should install the new script it generates as
/etc/init.d/gpm.dpkg-dist if /etc/init.d/gpm already exists.
