Normally these links are setup by some devel packages. If these symlinks
are created by the lazarus rpms these packages would conflict.
If there is really no package under OpenSuSE/Mandriva that is
responsible for the symlinks - which I doubt - then maybe we have to
create special rpm packages for these distros.
