[Pkg-postgresql-public] Bug#761020: postgresql-common: please use ID_LIKE from os-release to support unknown derivatives

While troubleshooting a build failure of postgis on raspbian I
discovered /usr/share/postgresql-common/supported-versions was returning
9.3. Further investigation showed that the script was failling to
identify the distribution and falling back to an apparently unmaintained
/etc/os-release provides ID_LIKE for specifically this kind of scenario.
It shows what distros a system was derived from. The general assumption
is that if a deriviative is unknown it should be treated like the distro
it is derived from.
The attatched patch makes
/usr/share/postgresql-common/supported-versions check ID_LIKE for ubuntu
and debian and use the settings for ubuntu or debian as appropriate in
this case, Note: the script checks for ubuntu before checking for
debian, this is important as ubuntu and it's derivatives will have both
debian and ubuntu in ID_LIKE
Debdiff attatched and uploaded to raspbian, no intent to NMU in debian.
