please : no symlinks to something.
we have good tools (dselect, dftp), that can take care of the directory
structures. symlinks only make everything bigger and confuse people.
symlinks are convinient, but using dselect, dftp, deity or some other
tool can be more convinient. and all these can or could work without symlinks,
as the file location is listed in the Package file.
