I cant find the package at p.u.c - http://packages.ubuntu.com/cgi-bin//search_packages.pl?version=dapper&subword=1&exact=&arch=any&releases=all&case=insensitive&keywords=netpbm&searchon=names theres one wich is 'netpbm', so i'm going to talk to that. I extracted netpbm and it looks clean - if one of the supporting packages holds those two binaries it may still be a problem.
