[Pkg-nagios-devel] Bug#516653: nagios3-common: Preremoval script: syntax error

Package: nagios3-common
Version: 3.0.6-3
Severity: normal

Trying to purge nagios3 from my system, I encountered this message:

  Removing nagios3-common ...
  /var/lib/dpkg/info/nagios3-common.prerm: line 23: syntax error near
  unexpected token `fi'
  dpkg: error processing nagios3-common (--remove):
   subprocess pre-removal script returned error exit status 2

Simple enough, the line in question (in 'nagios3-common.prerm') is
syntactically wrong.  I attached a unified diff fixing the problem.
