err /etc/mc/Syntax was a file not a directory. Going from the source and
Debian bug #539917, it looks like /usr/share is the correct place for
it, it'll be overridden by /etc/mc/Syntax, should that exist.

However, /etc/mc/Syntax was a conffile and the new package won't include
it, so it'll remain installed, overriding the one in /usr/share/mc, even
if it's never been modified. That's probably not ideal. Please look at
dpkg-maintscript-helper as a sane way to remove it.

Given the activity in the mc team in Debian, there won't be time to get
them to upload this before Beta 1, so forwarding the patch doesn't need
to come first.
