not only. I was focussed to the point, that there are packaged symlinks
pointing to files which are not packaged. A very good example for such ugly
things was the docbook-dtds package for a long time. IIRC about one month
ago, somebody took care of bug #193475 (just took another year). Finally,
this issue was detected by a rpm5.org rpm - like other package insanities.
