Well, Arch packaging standard says /usr/share/licenses/$pkgname is the 
correct license folder. And namcap respects that while verifying his 
package. Case it is not desire of the maintainer to use this standard 
(without typos and in $pkgname dirname), arch system won't break... but 
he will not be following correctly the aforementioned standard.

ps.: Doing a symlink won't vanish namcap's warning because symlink != 
directory. Anyway, it is just a warning.
