It worked before: I just successfully upgraded php-htmlpurifier using
dpkg 1.17.10. Looking closer at dpkg changelog, the regression seems to
have been introduced in dpkg 1.17.13:
> * Fix dpkg-maintscript-helper symlink_to_dir to assure absolute pathnames
And then, fixed in dpkg 1.17.14:

I’d rather reassign this bug to dpkg 1.17.13 and close it with dpkg
1.17.14 (php-htmlpurifier is not the only package relying on
symlink_to_dir. As documented on dpkg-maintscript-helper(1), the
old-target must be provided, and such target are often relatives, as
expected by the policy).
