Almost surely
/usr/share/emacs-snapshot/site-lisp/emacs-goodies-el/all.el is a
dangling symlink to /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/emacs-goodies-el/all.el,
but I don't know why it has been left over.  The prerm script of
emacs-goodies-el should have called
/usr/lib/emacsen-common/packages/remove/emacs-goodies-el which removes
the whole /usr/share/emacs-snapshot/site-lisp/emacs-goodies-el
