split it with the delimiting character (I proposed colon - as in
$PATH - but don't know if it makes better sense to use comma or space).
Here's what you deciphered yourself tonight in yaird, splitting a path
into directoy/file components:
my @components = split (/\/+/, $path);
If you want _either_ colon, comma or whitespace as delimiter (not sure
that is a good idea though) then something like this should work:
my @entries = split (/[:,\s]+/, $line);

Please do not bloat the postinst code! Separate it into a helper tool
