Okay, summary: In this case the whole proposition is that the symlink
makes the problem at rpmbuild time.  Removing the symlink from the
rpmbuild action and doing it on the target at install time should stop
the segfault happening if the report is to be believed at all.... but
you don't seem to think that has any value for the guy experiencing the
problem.  You think it is "false advice" and the product of some "rush"
on my part.
