The "no-debconf-config" warning is there because Debconf is not used as
part of package configuration at "dpkg --configure" time.  It is used
only when the admin explicitly invokes the "ovs-switch-config" script.
This isn't the usual way but at the time I found a Debian document that
said that it was OK.

At any rate, the ovs-switch-config script doesn't really work anymore.
No one has complained, so I don't think that we should bother keeping
this around.  I'll send out a patch that removes it.
