Bug#388604: drupal: purging the package fails (debconf unavailable)

Package: drupal
Version: 4.5.8-2
Severity: serious

Hello Debian QA Group,

There is an error when attempting to purge drupal:

  Removing drupal ...
  Purging configuration files for drupal ...
  /var/lib/dpkg/info/drupal.postrm: line 7: /usr/share/debconf/confmodule: No such file or directory
  dpkg: error processing drupal (--purge):
   subprocess post-removal script returned error exit status 1

The postrm cannot assume debconf to be available when purging the

See Policy 7.2:

  Note, however, that the `postrm' cannot rely on any non-essential packages to
  be present during the `purge' phase.

Imagine a large red swirl here.
