Adding a Pre-Depends on debconf in console-common?

#143837 was reported against console-common because the package uses
debconf in its preinst without having a Pre-Depends on debconf.
Policy 7.2 says:

          `Pre-Depends' are also required if the `preinst' script depends
          on the named package.  It is best to avoid this situation if

console-common is part of base so changing the preinst at this point
of the freeze is not a good idea.  Therefore, I will go ahead and add
a Pre-Depends on debconf if that's ok.
