See http://bugs.debian.org/143701

If localepurge deletes /usr/share/man/ja any further attempt[1] to
make the symlink for the Japanese manpage will fail.  I guess this
will happen each time a package with a javac alternative at lower
priority gets installed (unless you've selected another javac
alternative manually).
