Bug#379004: dpkg-cross: symlinks in linux-header packages are not converted

Package: dpkg-cross
Version: 1.28
Severity: normal

I'm trying to install linux-headers-2.6.17-1-nslu2_2.6.17-2_arm.deb
with dpkg-cross. The original deb contains lots of symlinks such as:

lrwxrwxrwx root/root         0 2006-07-01 18:34 ./usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.17-1-nslu2/arch/arm/kernel/Makefile -> ../../../../linux-headers-2.6.17-1/arch/arm/kernel/Makefile

~$ dpkg -c linux-headers-2.6.17-1-nslu2_2.6.17-2_arm.deb | grep -- "->"|wc
    973    7784  165399

These are critical for correct operation. But they are not in the converted deb:

~$ dpkg -c linux-headers-2.6.17-1-nslu2-arm-cross_2.6.17-2_all.deb | grep -- "->"
lrwxrwxrwx root/root         0 2006-07-20 08:22 ./usr/arm-linux-gnu/lib/modules/2.6.17-1-nslu2/build -> ../../../src/linux-headers-2.6.17-1-nslu2
lrwxrwxrwx root/root         0 2006-07-20 08:22 ./usr/arm-linux-gnu/src/linux-headers-2.6.17-1-nslu2/include/asm -> asm-arm

Versions of packages dpkg-cross depends on:
ii  binutils                      2.17-1     The GNU assembler, linker and bina
ii  dpkg-dev                      1.13.21    package building tools for Debian
ii  file                          4.17-2     Determines file type using "magic"

dpkg-cross recommends no packages.
