Bug#329759: libgstreamer-gconf0.8-0: prerm failure: gconftool-2: command not found

Package: libgstreamer-gconf0.8-0
Version: 0.8.11-1
Severity: serious
Justification: prerm fails


on purging the package I get this error:
/var/lib/dpkg/info/libgstreamer-gconf0.8-0.prerm: line 9: gconftool-2: command not found

I see that gconftool-2 is in libgconf2-4, which is a dependency, however
on my system libgconf2-4 is already deleted, so now I have no chance
to purge libgstreamer-gconf0.8.0.

I suggest to ignore the gconftool-2 call if it does not exist.
