dhcp3-server postinst

In the postinst you create a temporary file under /tmp and then move it to 
/etc/default. However on SE Linux that results in the file being in the type 
tmp_dpkg_t because it was created by the postinst script (running as dpkg_t) 
in the /tmp directory.  The tmp_dpkg_t type is not allowed to be read by the 
system init scripts (so dhcp3 server can't start).

One solution to this is to have the temporary file created as 
/etc/default/dhcp3-server.new which ensures that it has the right type (and 
also removes the need for running a program to create the temporary file - no 
other program will use the name /etc/default/dhcp3-server.new).
