Bug#235687: more info for syntax error in X package install scripts

   This hit me too.  It is because of either a bash-ism in the install
   script, or a deficiency in dash (the shell currently acting as
   /bin/sh).  The work around, then, is to replace /bin/sh with a link
   to bash and try the install again.  If dash has installed itself as
   /bin/sh, this is as easy as 'dpkg-reconfigure dash'.
