PS: The problem is not that the /u/s/fonts/ttf-liberation directory is 
not there (actually, it is, by means of debian/ttf-liberation.dirs). 
The problem is that fonts-liberation claimed to be ttf-liberation (by 
means of the Provides: field) without providing this actual directory. 
It is, however, still there in the ttf-liberation transitional package.

We just needed to remove the Provides field, which I have already done 
in my previous commit.
