Bug#184488: apt-utils: Preconfiguration fails if /tmp is mounted noexec

Package: apt-utils
Version: 0.5.4
Severity: normal

If /tmp is mounted noexec, a message of the form

Can't exec "/tmp/config.1326213": Permission denied at /usr/share/perl/5.6.1/IPC/Open3.pm line 159.
open2: exec of /tmp/config.1326213 configure 1.10.7-9 failed at /usr/share/perl5/Debconf/ConfModule.pm line 44
cvs failed to preconfigure, with exit status 255

is generated for each package installed via apt-get.  Package installation
succeeds despite the error, so it's not a grave bug, but (this portion
of) apt-utils does not appear able to function in such an environment.
