dh_link -p$(pkg_dev) usr/include/charls usr/include/CharLS

[cc me please]

Dear mentors,

I am trying to use the following dh_link command:

$ cat d/rules
dh_link -p$(pkg_dev) usr/include/charls usr/include/CharLS

Which gives:

$ dpkg -c ../libcharls-dev_2.1.0+dfsg-5_amd64.deb
lrwxrwxrwx root/root         0 2020-10-29 17:58 ./usr/include/CharLS -> charls

It seems that the above *only* works (give expected results of
directory symlink) when there is no existing /usr/include/CharLS

What is the right black magic to get a nice upgrade path for
libcharls-dev 2.0 (which provides a /usr/include/CharLS directory), to
libcharls-dev 2.1 which provides a /usr/include/CharLS symlink to

Code is at:


Thanks for your help
