/ -> /usr symlink

Hi, all!

As Marcus pointed out, there will be problems with some Debian
packages which depend on / and /usr being separate directories.
I, personally, would like to keep the symlink, and fix the problems
that come up.

Making / and /usr separate directories will introduce problems, too,
so I'd rather side with the GNU standards on this issue.

This is interesting, though, because it is our first conflict between
GNU and Debian policy.  I guess it's an issue that I (or somebody)
should open on debian-policy.
