Jaldar, I still get the following error on woody systems:

dpkg --configure pico
Setting up pico (4.44L-1) ...
update-alternatives: unable to make /usr/man/man1/editor.1.gz.dpkg-tmp a symlink
to /etc/alternatives/editor.1.gz: No such
file or directory
dpkg: error processing pico (--configure):
 subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 2
 Errors were encountered while processing:

I read recently the problem may be in update-alternatives, although
/usr/man/ clearly does not exist and yet it gets invoked in postinst:

set -e
update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/editor editor /usr/bin/pico 40 \
  --slave /usr/man/man1/editor.1.gz editor.1.gz /usr/man/man1/pico.1.gz

  if [ "$1" = "configure" -a -x /usr/bin/update-menus ]; then update-menus ; fi
  # End automatically added section
  # Automatically added by dh_installdocs
  if [ "$1" = "configure" ]; then
          if [ -d /usr/doc -a ! -e /usr/doc/pico -a -d /usr/share/doc/pico ];
		                  ln -sf ../share/doc/pico /usr/doc/pico
