Bug#405884: netcdfg-dev fails to install when /usr/doc is a symbolic link to /use/share/doc

Package: netcdfg-dev
Version: 3.6.1-1
Severity: normal


The package is left unconfigured if /usr/doc is a symbolic link to /usr/share/doc. Commenting out the line

rm -f /usr/doc/netcdfg-dev

in netcdfg-dev.postinst did the trick.

I'm not really sure about the severity of this (bug?) but perhaps it may be a little piece of useful information to people having the same symbolic link like me.
