Bug#45300: Install failure

Package: dpkg-dev

dpkg-dev install fails with a file conflict with package "dpkg":

 > Preparing to replace dpkg-dev (using .../dpkg-dev_1.4.1.9_all.deb) ...
 > Unpacking replacement dpkg-dev ...
 > dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/dpkg-dev_1.4.1.9_all.deb (--unpack):
 >  trying to overwrite `/usr/bin/dpkg-scansources', which is also in package dpkg
 > Errors were encountered while processing:
 >  /var/cache/apt/archives/dpkg-dev_1.4.1.9_all.deb

This is from an install on a current potato/powerpc system.
