If there's a preinst file, put it in there.  If there's not, I don't know if 
there's something more involved than just creating one.  I'm looking at 
Pidgin's debian/ directory and I don't see any references to its preinst files 
in any of the other files, so t *seems* like 'just create one.'  By the way, 
Pidgin's is named pidgin.preinst so I'm guessing you may need to name it 

Hope that helps some...
