Dpkg install error on Enlightenment Package

Hi all,

Tried to upgrade Enlightenment from 0.14 to 0.16 as seen below.  I can't
figure out the unknown option about --assert-long-filenames as it's not in
the dpkg --help or in the man files of dpkg.  Do I have an outdated dpkg
or anything else amiss?

aubase:/usr2/local# dpkg --install enlightenment_0.16.3-5_i386.deb
(Reading database ... 45570 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking enlightenment (from enlightenment_0.16.3-5_i386.deb) ...

Type dpkg --help for help about installing and deinstalling packages [*];

Type dpkg -Dhelp for a list of dpkg debug flag values;
Type dpkg --force-help for a list of forcing options;
Type dpkg-deb --help for help about manipulating *.deb files;
Type dpkg --licence for copyright licence and lack of warranty (GNU GPL)

Options marked [*] produce a lot of output - pipe it through `less' or
`more' !
