Bug#24001: dpkg: dpkg --search should check real file instead of symlinks

Package: dpkg

The --search (-S) option does only check the supplied path, making "dpkg -S
`which startx`" fail.

It would be good if dpkg checked the real (non-symbolic-link) path of the
arguments as well.

I am using kernel 2.0.34, glibc 2.0.6.
