Default Bug#621363: linux-base: postinst fails when dosfslabel is not installed

Package: linux-base
Version: 3
Severity: normal

-- System Information:
Debian Release: wheezy/sid
APT prefers testing
APT policy: (500, 'testing')
Architecture: i386 (i686)

Kernel: Linux 2.6.32-trunk-686 (SMP w/1 CPU core)
Locale: LANG=en_US.UTF-8, LC_CTYPE=en_US.UTF-8 (charmap=UTF-8)
Shell: /bin/sh linked to /bin/bash

Versions of packages linux-base depends on:
ii debconf [debconf-2.0] 1.5.38 Debian configuration management sy
ii libuuid-perl 0.02-4 Perl extension for using UUID inte
ii udev 166-1 /dev/ and hotplug management daemo
ii util-linux 2.17.2-9.1 Miscellaneous system utilities

linux-base recommends no packages.

linux-base suggests no packages.

-- debconf information:
* linux-base/disk-id-convert-plan-no-relabel: true
* linux-base/disk-id-convert-auto: true
* linux-base/disk-id-convert-plan: true

When upgrading the system with the following line in /etc/fstab, it fails because dosfslabel is not installed.

/dev/sdc1 /mnt/sdc1 vfat sync,dirsync,noatime,users,noauto,rw,noexec,iochar set=iso8859-1,codepage=850,fmask=0133,shortname=lower 0 0

I got the following message:
Configuring linux-base

Failed to update disk device IDs

An error occurred while attempting to update the system configuration:

Can't exec "dosfslabel": No such file or directory at
/var/lib/dpkg/info/linux-base.postinst line 1046, <STDIN> line 10.
dosfslabel failed: -1 at /var/lib/dpkg/info/linux-base.postinst line
1046, <STDIN> line 10.

You can either correct this error and retry the automatic update, or
choose to update the system configuration yourself.

I would expect a normal message that the conversion can not be done, instead of the current message.
