Oops, right. nfsroot needs a "bind" dependancy.

Just filed a bug against the package. Thanks!

I would like those too. In this case, dpkg should just ignore the error messages it gets from
the prerm. The way to fix this (in this case this is safe), is to do:
rm /var/lib/dpkg/info/nfsroot.prerm

before running dpkg -r nfsroot again.
