While looking for package licenses on my machine, I noticed that some of
the symlinks in the lynx package (namely those in
/usr/share/lynx/lynx_help) point to files in a nonexistent directory:
$ ls -l /usr/share/doc/lynx/lynx_help/C*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 igor Users 50 Sep 2 2003 /usr/share/doc/lynx/lynx_help/COPYHEADER -> /tmp/install/install/usr/share/doc/lynx/COPYHEADER
lrwxrwxrwx 1 igor Users 47 Sep 2 2003 /usr/share/doc/lynx/lynx_help/COPYING -> /tmp/install/install/usr/share/doc/lynx/COPYING
Looks like a bug in the packaging Makefile that made those symlinks
absolute instead of relative.
