You are right, that file should be there
because standard postgis does not contain this projection and i guess
it would give weird results with mapnik. I will add this file as an example
in /usr/share/doc/osm2pgsql/examples/.

In case you not already extracted it from the source package, here is
the content until the updated package is available.

proj4text)VALUES (900913,'EPSG',900913,'PROJCS["WGS84 / Simple

900913.sql is not essential for osm2pgsql to work, but it's still a bug
that is is missing from the package. So thanks for reporting it
here so that we can fix the package instead of 'reporting' it to 
the OSM wiki :)
