Hmm, so actually even if you symlink like this, then /etc should
override /lib, and the symlink destination path should only be used as
last fallback. That's at least the theory, but there might be a bug
somewhere... iirc there where problems with that, where aliases of
autvt@ didn't get taken into account properly either... Something to
look into definitely. Added to TODO list.
