Bug#489132: lenny release notes, upgrade dpkg first

Package: release-notes
Severity: important

To work-around a problem that can happen in the perl 5.10 upgrade (see
#479711), the perl scripts contained in dpkg (update-alternatives,
dpkg-divert) have been modified... but for the work-around to be used, the
new dpkg must obviously be installed first, before the dist-upgrade.

Given that the new dpkg also supports triggers, we should probably also
recommend to upgrade apt/aptitude at the same time otherwise those tools
might be confused by the new package status...

X-Debbugs-Ccing deity@l.d.o and -devel for possible comments (-dpkg left
out as it discards BTS mails).
