[pacman-dev] symlink handling in makepkg

Hello everybody,

pacman changed directory symlink handling, making some packages fail to
install with conflict to /usr/lib64 and others.

How about solving this in makepkg? We could create the same symlinks before
PKGBUILD's package() in run_package(), then remove afterwards.

This would make packages install their files to correct places without
fiddling with install pathes. I could prepare a patch if interested.
main(a){char*c=/*    Schoene Gruesse                         */"B?IJj;MEH"
"CX:;",b;for(a/*    Chris           get my mail address:    */=0;b=c[a++];)
putchar(b-1/(/*               gcc -o sig sig.c && ./sig    */b/42*2-3)*42);}
