Are these links required? The location of these things are just weird, there's no reason to have the datadir inside the libexecdir, there's not a single piece of common software that does this. Logical would be to have the datadir pointing to /usr/share, where the licenses would appear in /usr/share/licenses, in which case they're not needed anymore because they're already there.
