Package: libc6
Version: 2.1.1-0.2


 the following warning, which actually leads to an error, occurs if
 /usr is on its own partition (and /etc/localtime is not a link -
 this command is contained in libc6.postinst)

root@p6 [/etc] # zic -l `cat /etc/timezone`
"command line", line 1: warning: hard link failed, symbolic link used

 This symbolic link (to ../Europe/Berlin in my case) is wrong and
 doesn't work, naturally.
 IMO, the best way is to create a single new file (maybe copying the file
 that is now the target of the link).
