Bug#409516: libc6: error in dpkg --compare-versions call

Package: libc6
Version: 2.3.6.ds1-10

During a new installation using D-I/debootstrap of testing I noticed the
following error in the syslog. It looks like dpkg --compare-versions is
not called correctly, possibly because this is an initial installation
and not an upgrade. I suspect the error to be in the postinst.


Setting up dpkg (1.13.25) ...

Selecting previously deselected package libc6.
(Reading database ...
304 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking libc6 (from .../libc6_2.3.6.ds1-10_i386.deb) ...
Setting up libc6 (2.3.6.ds1-10) ...
dpkg: libc6: dependency problems, but configuring anyway as you request:
 libc6 depends on tzdata; however:
  Package tzdata is not installed.
dpkg: --compare-versions takes three arguments: <version> <relation> <version>

Type dpkg --help for help about installing and deinstalling packages [*];
Use `dselect' or `aptitude' for user-friendly package management;
Type dpkg -Dhelp for a list of dpkg debug flag values;
Type dpkg --force-help for a list of forcing options;
Type dpkg-deb --help for help about manipulating *.deb files;
Type dpkg --license for copyright license and lack of warranty(GNU GPL) [*].

Options marked [*] produce a lot of output - pipe it through `less' or `more' !

Selecting previously deselected package perl-base.
