comment How to find files in a Debian system not installed or created by dpkg?
The problem with this approach is that there are more files or links in /usr than actually listed by dpkg. For example, /usr/bin/aptitude exists, probably created by some post-installation script, but it's not listed by dpkg. So, I guess what I want here is a list of files installed or created by installing any package (will change question).

@DerfK: You can get -l to list more than one package, for example like this: dpkg -L `aptitude search ~i -F "%p"`

There is no --list-all-package-files option.
