[php-maint] Bug#425084: php5 prints ugly message if php5-gd is deinstalled with config files remaining

Package: php5-gd
Severity: normal

joey at kodama:~>php5
PHP Warning:  PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library '/usr/lib/php5/20060613+lfs/gd.so' - /usr/lib/php5/20060613+lfs/gd.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory in Unknown on line 0

joey at kodama:~>dpkg -s php5-gd
Package: php5-gd
Status: deinstall ok config-files

I guess that the config files lead to this ugly behavior if the package
is removed but not purged. Reporting it since it was a real "WTF?" moment
for me.
