If you mean that you link from within one package to a file included
within a different package, then the package is missing "Requires:
/path/to/link/target", isn't it?

Of course, you can try to get away with just "Requires: some-pkg-name",
but that is too fragile, especially if you already believe that the
linked file might be dropped any time.
