Bug#201513: libgtop-dev: preinst fails if doc directory isn't a symlink

Package: libgtop-dev
Version: 1.0.13-7
Severity: grave

/var/lib/dpkg/info/libgtop-dev.preinst contains the following:


[ -L /usr/share/doc/libgtop-dev ] && rm /usr/share/doc/libgtop-dev

If the doc directory is not a symlink, this line returns an exit status of 1
and the preinst fails, causing the package installation to fail. This will
happen when the package is being installed for the first time or when it is
upgraded from any version which didn't use a symlink.

I think a simple 'exit 0' as the last line of the preinst would fix the
