Bug#435201: htdig: cron.daily script fails noisily when package is not installed

Package: htdig
Version: 1:3.2.0b6-3.1
Severity: normal

I removed the htdig and its lockfile-progs dependency but its cron
script remains (as it is a conf file), however every day I get an email
  /etc/cron.daily/htdig: 6: lockfile-create: not found

Policy 9.5 (Cron jobs) suggests that "crontab entries in these
directories [/etc/cron.*] should check if all necessary programs are
installed before they try to execute them".
