regression in /etc/acpi/powerbtn.sh causes it to fail entirely on Ubuntu servers

Status in “acpi” package in Ubuntu: Fix Committed
Status in “acpi” source package in Lucid: Fix Committed
Binary package hint: acpi
The last upload of acpid causes a problem on systems which do not have the acpi-support package installed:
acpid (1.0.10-5ubuntu2) lucid; urgency=low
* Source /usr/share/acpi-support/power-funcs in powerbtn.sh (LP: #508073)

The sourcing of the file happens unconditionally, and the acpid package does not depend on acpi-support, which provides that file.
This could be solved by adding acpi-support to acpid's depends, however, this isn't desirable because it pulls in several X related packages which we would not want on a server.
Instead, let's only source that file if it exists. If it doesn't, then there is a foolproof failure case handling at the bottom of that script.
