I have analyzed this bug and found a fix.

The faulty symlink is caused by that there are two different postgis versions stated in the package. One general in Version.config, and one specifically for JDBC in java/jdbc/pom.xml.

However, the debian/rules file uses a single variable POSTGIS_VERSION retrieved from Version.config for both of these, ignoring the value for JDBC.

The attached patch retrieves a new variable POSTGIS_JDBC_VERSION from java/jdbc/pom.xml and uses it in the creation of the symlink which now works.

Furthermore this bug blocks debbug #713278 (Osmosis FTBFS). If one manages to workaround the Checkstyle version being too recent, it instead fails to build as postgis can't be found due to this incorrect symlink.
