I've just changed localepurge to only delete files instead of complete
subdirectories making it keep all non files contained in them. This
includes all symlinks in question and should take care of the underlying
I still do maintain the opinion that update-alternatives needs to be made
more robust in case of broken symlinks. I was bitten by the very same
problem before localepurge ever existed. Therefore i won't close this bug
with my next upload because the actual solution has to be found within

I think that dpkg needs a feature to exclose parts of a package from
installation. This will be the very time when localepurge will be removed
from Debian because it will by then be obsolete. There is BTW no gain
from changing any timing because localepurge is the very last thing
executed after every package has already been installed and configured.
