cdebconf: dpkg-reconfigure tests for %s.config

One thing I found, is that on line 299 of dpkg-reconfigure.c
there is a test for %s.config in INFODIR, which seems to abort
the reconfigure if it is not found.
This means that in the context of debian-installer and main-menu,
when main-menu calls dpkg-reconfigure nothing happens since there
are no .configs in debian-installer.
Also on searching google, I came up with the following CVS entry
Changes since 1.3: +0 -7 lines
Diff to previous 1.3
* Removed test from dpkg-reconfigure for .config script. The test
shouldn't be necessary; postinst scripts _should_ be idempotent.
This was for version 1.4
