[arch-general] syslinux 6.01-1 issues

I'm using syslinux for my bootloader. I'm using BIOS, not UEFI, on a
32-bit system.
After updating syslinux 5.10-3 -> 6.01-1 the modules' symlinks in
/boot/syslinux didn't get updated and still point to
/usr/lib/syslinux/ instead of to /usr/lib/syslinux/bios e.g. menu.c32
-> /usr/lib/syslinux/menu.c32 which prevents the syslinux menu from
appearing on boot (modules not found).
Running '# /usr/bin/syslinux-install_update -i -a -m' doesn't help.

Should I remove all the symlinks from /boot/syslinux and only copy the
needed files back? I didn't install syslinux manually so i don't know
why should I have to do this. Did I miss / misunderstand something?
