Bug#561324: aiccu: uses non-essential tools in the config script

Package: aiccu
Version: 20070115-11
Severity: serious

The config script of the package uses the aiccu tool itself
to create a list of tunnel providers and even tries to connect
the tunnel providers during config stage.

This is a policy violation, because policy 3.9.1 states:
"The config script might be run before the preinst script, and before
the package is unpacked or any of its dependencies or pre-dependencies
are satisfied. Therefore it must work using only the tools present in
essential packages."

As the package might get unpacked _after_ running the script,
it simply cannot depend on itself to be around at that point.
