this is actually no error. You can still run gnugk from the commandline.
The init.d script is for running GnuGK as a service - which means on
system boot. Surely you can still remove the symlink in
/etc/rc*.d/S*gnugk and still enable the daemon in /etc/default/gnugk to
make use of this script. But anyway, the above is not an error or a bug.

If you think the wording needs to be enhanced to reflect this more
clearly, please file a bug with our BTS[1].

Best regards,
