Package: ttf-dejavu-extra
Version: 2.21-1
Followup-For: Bug #452127

Apparently, we get:

grep: gs.d/dirs/fonts/DejaVuSerifCondensed-BoldOblique.ttf: No such file
or directory
grep: gs.d/dirs/fonts/DejaVuSerifCondensed-Oblique.ttf: No such file or
grep: gs.d/dirs/fonts/DejaVuSerif-BoldOblique.ttf: No such file or
grep: gs.d/dirs/fonts/DejaVuSerif-Oblique.ttf: No such file or directory
No such file or directory
grep: x-ttcidfont-conf.d/dirs/TrueType/DejaVuSerifCondensed-Oblique.ttf:
No such file or directory
grep: x-ttcidfont-conf.d/dirs/TrueType/DejaVuSerif-BoldOblique.ttf: No
such file or directory
grep: x-ttcidfont-conf.d/dirs/TrueType/DejaVuSerif-Oblique.ttf: No such
file or directory

And that cause x-ttcidfont-conf stop doing its job to link xfonts to 
ttf fonts. Causes bug 437674 419052 .

Apparently, it's a leftover from the bug 440142. 

Please somehow remove old dangling symlinks when upgrade.
