Furthermore, with the current situation, if you install libXft-devel and
then reinstall xorg-x11-devel, the libXft headers (and anything else you
might have installed in the directory /usr/include/X11) are deleted when
the symlink is remade! That is clearly broken. You can't have two
packages sharing ownership of a directory like that. Please fix.
