Bug#344269: lintian: false executable-not-elf-or-script warning with perl magic header

I believe that this bug has been resolved incorrectly. Section 10.4 of the
Debian Policy says:

   "All command scripts, including the package maintainer scripts inside the
    package and used by dpkg, should have a #! line naming the shell to be
    used to interpret them."

    In the case of Perl scripts this should be #!/usr/bin/perl."

Moreover, section 5.g of the Etch RC Policy says:

   "Scripts must include the appropriate #! line, and set executable."

It seems that tetex-base has a release-critical bug, and that lintian was
right to complain about it.
