At first, this one looked odd to me.  The dictd init script provides
dictd, why should it care about dicod?

Looking closer, it is the dicod package (conflicting with dictd) that
ships a symlink /etc/init.d/dictd -> dicod, and it may be this one that
insserv is complaining about.  However, installing dicod in a sid chroot
did not show up any problem.
