No, there is no need for these symlinks (at least as far as the X server is concerned). I looked at this when I did the last X server (particularly at how the X server handles things on Solaris and SunOS). The Right Thing to do is to have the X server try to use all /dev/fb* (actually, I decided to only try /dev/fb since that's what Solaris/SunOS version did. I don't know of any sparcs that support more than 4 framebuffers, so it sort of makes sense.) This should also mean that it will automatically figure out if your box is multiheaded and if so start X on all your screens - with a /dev/fb symlink this will not work.
-- Of course I'm crazy, but that doesn't mean I'm wrong.
