What's wrong with shipping symlinks in the RPM? I thought that worked
OK? OK you've got to create them in the %install section but I didn't

I have to admit tho' that I probably would have preferred stub files
too, but that's just a personal preference and I can't really think of
anything wrong with symlinks :)
