Bug#362992: x11-common: uses debconf in preinst without pre-depends

Package: x11-common
Version: 1:7.0.12
Severity: serious

The x11-common preinst script sources /usr/share/debconf/confmodule
unconditionally, but x11-common does not pre-depend on debconf.  Since
debconf is not Essential, this is an RC bug.

I suspect that the only use of db_* in x11-common.preinst belongs in a
.config script, not in the preinst script, since the only thing being done
is renaming some debconf questions in the database.
