[Pkg-samba-maint] Bug#629406: samba-common: create empty /etc/samba/dhcp.conf even if samba-common/dhcp=false

The following question is asked at samba-common installation:
If your computer gets IP address information from a DHCP server on the
network, the DHCP server may also provide information about WINS
servers ("NetBIOS name servers") present on the network. This
requires a change to your smb.conf file so that DHCP-provided WINS
settings will automatically be read from /etc/samba/dhcp.conf.
The dhcp3-client package must be installed to take advantage of this feature.
Modify smb.conf to use WINS settings from DHCP?
Even if I chose "No", every time the machine is rebooted (or a DHCP
connection is renewed) an empty /etc/samba/dhcp.conf file is created.
This is particular annoying given that etckeeper always complains:
** etckeeper detected uncommitted changes in /etc prior to apt run
** Aborting apt run. Manually commit and restart.
