Title:
  postfix check warns about symlink being group writable

Status in postfix package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in postfix source package in Xenial:
  New
Status in postfix package in Debian:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  On Xenial, "postfix check" complains like that:

  postfix/postfix-script: warning: group or other writable: 
/usr/lib/postfix/./libpostfix-tls.so.1
  postfix/postfix-script: warning: group or other writable: 
/usr/lib/postfix/./libpostfix-util.so.1
  postfix/postfix-script: warning: group or other writable: 
/usr/lib/postfix/./sbin/lmtp
  postfix/postfix-script: warning: group or other writable: 
/usr/lib/postfix/./libpostfix-master.so.1
  postfix/postfix-script: warning: group or other writable: 
/usr/lib/postfix/./libpostfix-global.so.1
  postfix/postfix-script: warning: group or other writable: 
/usr/lib/postfix/./libpostfix-dns.so.1
  postfix/postfix-script: warning: group or other writable: 
/usr/lib/postfix/sbin/./lmtp

  Those are symlinks:

  root@smtp01:~# ls -l /usr/lib/postfix/./libpostfix-tls.so.1
  lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 23 Aug  8 15:23 /usr/lib/postfix/./libpostfix-tls.so.1 
-> libpostfix-tls.so.1.0.1

  Yet the real .so has no permission issue:

  # ls -l /usr/lib/postfix/./libpostfix-tls.so.1.0.1 
  -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 103344 Aug  8 15:23 
/usr/lib/postfix/./libpostfix-tls.so.1.0.1

  This problem doesn't happen on Trusty.
