Bug#852549: do not list /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gio/modules

On a minimal non graphical system without any gio modules installed, e.g.
the packages glib-networking or dconf-gsettings-backend, the directory
 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gio/modules does not exist.
Due to the entry in debian/libglib2.0-0.dirs, the path is contained on the
system at /var/lib/dpkg/info/libglib2.0-0:amd.list .
Cruft then complains about the nonexistence of the path.

Maybe the directory could be shipped empty?

Can you elaborate what is supposed to be the bug here?

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
