I just rebuilt fonts-sil-andika with the following added: debian/maintscript: rm_conffile /etc/fonts/conf.avail/65-andika.conf 1.004-2~ fonts-sil-andika Now, the conffile really goes away when the package is upgraded. My remaining problem is the /etc/fonts/conf.d/65-andika symling that is created when the wheezy package is installed. Even if I use this in debian/maintscript: rm_conffile /etc/fonts/conf.avail/65-andika.conf 1.004-2~ fonts-sil-andika rm_conffile /etc/fonts/conf.d/65-andika.conf 1.004-2~ fonts-sil-andika The symlink still remains after the package is upgraded. It is a dangling symlink but still there. Anyone with a clue about how to properly deal with this? PS: I plan to clean out the various good and bad conffile handling which we're doing in many font packages, in the jessie->stretch release cycle.
