dpkg error?

I removed gpm with: 'update-rc.d -f gpm remove' then 'dpkg -P gpm'
Apparently this did not remove a reference to gpm somewhere in the dpkg
system. Dselect will not install new packages as it fails with the
following messages:

(Reading database ... 69797 files and directories currently installed.)
Removing gpm ...
/var/lib/dpkg/info/gpm.prerm: /etc/init.d/gpm: No such file or directory
/usr/sbin/gpm: invalid option -- x
gpm 1.19.6, Thu Oct  4 00:21:21 CEST 2001
Error in the commandline specification. Try "/usr/sbin/gpm -h".
/var/lib/dpkg/info/gpm.prerm:  : command not found
dpkg: error processing gpm (--purge):
