Are you using debhelper?

I have also a package with symlinks and do dh_link before dh_compress in 
binary-arch target:
  dh_installchangelogs ChangeLog
  dh_link usr/share/man/de/man1/mpgtx.1 usr/share/man/de/man1/mpgsplit.1 \
          usr/share/man/de/man1/mpgtx.1 usr/share/man/de/man1/mpgcat.1 \
          usr/share/man/de/man1/mpgtx.1 usr/share/man/de/man1/mpgjoin.1 \
          usr/share/man/de/man1/mpgtx.1 usr/share/man/de/man1/mpginfo.1 \
          usr/share/man/de/man1/mpgtx.1 usr/share/man/de/man1/mpgdemux.1

Lintian likes it. ;-)
