Bug#267085: xbase-clients: preinst script accessing xinitrc causes syntax error

Package: xbase-clients
Version: 4.2.1-12.1
Severity: normal

At line 469 in the preinst script is the following:

	if [ -L /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc -a $(readlink /etc/X11/xinitrc)= ....

This is causing a syntax error at install time:

	/var/lib/dpkg/tmp.ci/preinst: line 469: [: too many arguments

I believe the line should read:

	if [ -L /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc -a $(readlink /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc)= ....
