FR 3.0.9 on Debian Jessie: present in both freeradius-dhcp and freeradius

just a minor issue in Debian packaging of 3.0.9:
Building the .deb packages is fine, but when I try to install them with dpkg -i I get

Selecting previously unselected package freeradius-dhcp.
(Reading database ... 39805 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to unpack freeradius-dhcp_3.0.9+git_amd64.deb ...
Unpacking freeradius-dhcp (3.0.9+git) ...
dpkg: error processing archive freeradius-dhcp_3.0.9+git_amd64.deb (--install):
  trying to overwrite '/usr/lib/freeradius/', which is also in package freeradius 3.0.9+git

... or the other way round when swapping install sequence.

Indeed I can see it doubly:

root at vhrz715:~/freeradius-3.0.9# dpkg -c freeradius-dhcp_3.0.9+git_amd64.deb | grep
-rw-r--r-- root/root     15256 2015-09-16 10:03 ./usr/lib/freeradius/
root at vhrz715:~/freeradius-3.0.9# dpkg -c freeradius_3.0.9+git_amd64.deb | grep
-rw-r--r-- root/root     15256 2015-09-16 10:03 ./usr/lib/freeradius/

Perhaps that was missed when moving the DHCP things to their own package?

Cheers, Martin
