That is how you use the etherconf tool, "dpkg-reconfigure etherconf".
when I do I get this:
laptop:~# cat /etc/network/interfaces
### etherconf DEBCONF AREA. DO NOT EDIT THIS AREA OR INSERT TEXT BEFORE IT.
auto lo eth0
iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet dhcp
### END OF DEBCONF AREA. PLACE YOUR EDITS BELOW; THEY WILL BE PRESERVED.
