Correction: the whole if block wasn't being executed also, so the 
dpkg-divert command and the wrong link weren't executed too. More, the 
correct link should be from /bin/true to /root/usr/sbin/anacron (I 
guess /bin gets mounted before /root).

Here is a diff from the changes I made (with a corrected link):

Tested and confirmed working.
anacron is linked and «dpkg-diverted» now:
$ ls -l /usb/sbin/anacron*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root    14 Jun 14 22:16 /usr/sbin/anacron -> /bin/true
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 23040 Mar  9  2008 /usr/sbin/anacron.distrib
$ sudo dpkg-divert --list|grep anacron
local diversion of /usr/sbin/anacron to /usr/sbin/anacron.distrib

No more anacron process:
$ ps aux |grep anacron
live      6458  0.0  0.1   3128   736 pts/0    R+   22:33   0:00 grep anacron

Now that the if block is working, it's preventing my postfix server from 

	# No point, really
	rm -f /root/etc/rc?.d/[SK]??postfix

Postfix isn't installed by default in debian, so I guess the point was 
to do this with exim4. Since there is really no point for doing that for 
neither of them (postfix nor exim4) I would suggest removing that line.
