Bug#218516: linux-kernel-headers: Check for symbolic link before installing

Because Sarge supports NPTL when using 2.6 kernels, and that requires
2.6 headers to be useful. A number of other applications can take
advantage of 2.6 features there now.
NPTL is fine mostly for servers. But I guess a number of user mode
driver for average people will also probably break right now because of
API inconsistencies between 2.4 and 2.6 (raw 1394 or USB are expected).
I start wondering if a 2.4 GLIBC and a 2.6 GLIBC should be envisaged?
Ooops. See thread about NPTL performances problem compared to
linuxthread due to bad locking locking strategy.
NB: apparently CVS NPTL is fixed but waht about debian libc :-)
