Even if it's created by libc-bin's postinst, it still wouldn't be removed
when libc-bin is (hypothetically) purged, because it's not a registered
conffile of that package.

Of course, one should NOT purge libc-bin.

wooledg:~$ dpkg -s libc-bin
Package: libc-bin
Essential: yes
 /etc/bindresvport.blacklist 4c09213317e4e3dd3c71d74404e503c5
 /etc/default/nss d6d5d6f621fb3ead2548076ce81e309c
 /etc/gai.conf 28fa76ff5a9e0566eaa1e11f1ce51f09
 /etc/ld.so.conf 4317c6de8564b68d628c21efa96b37e4
 /etc/ld.so.conf.d/libc.conf d4d833fd095fb7b90e1bb4a547f16de6

Whatever Gene did, it's absolutely not normal or desirable for
nsswitch.conf to vanish.  I still think he deleted it by hand and then
forgot the exact sequence of steps which led to its disappearance, so
he simply blamed it on purging ahavi-daemon.
