Problem with the new xlibs deb


when updating xlibs to 6.8.2.dfsg.1-6_all.deb on debian testing box,
aptitude fails with the following message:

dpkg: error
processing /var/cache/apt/archives/xlibs_6.8.2.dfsg.1-6_all.deb
(--unpack): subprocess pre-installation script returned error exit
status 1 /var/lib/dpkg/tmp.ci/postrm: line 886:
replace_conffile_with_symlink_rollback: command not found

I took a look at the debian/postinst file and indeed there is a
trivial naming mismatch (remove_conffile_with_symlink_rollback
instead of replace_conffile_with_symlink_rollback). Is there a way to
extract the binary package, fix the problem and repackage it without
the hussle of building it from source? It's a trivial fixup, yet it
keeps a bunch of other packages from being updated, so I'd really like
to resolve this as soon as possible.

Any ideas?
