Please check for emacs-package-install before using it, patch attached.

I previously had emacs installed on my system but after experiencing
catastrophic failure and restoring my data from a backup I have [1] from
the backup but I don't have emacs-package-install installed because I
don't backup /usr and had to start a new install from scratch.

     1. /var/lib/emacsen-common/state/package/installed/emacsen-common
