Bug#578372: exim4: comment in debian/control breaks debian/create-custom-package

Package: exim4
Version: 4.69-11
Severity: normal

debian/control includes a comment in line 20 which prevents
debian/create-custom-package from being successful:

$ debian/create-custom-package abc
#find OS doc scripts exim_monitor src util -perm -044 -or -print0 |\
        #       xargs -0r chmod -c og+r
grep-dctrl: control:20: expected a colon.u

Line 20 is this one:

# psmisc just for exiwhat.

Without that line, debian/control gets modified correctly.

Patch attached.
