Hi Helmut,

Normally, the bug you reported is fixed in the latest version of the 
package, which will soon be uploaded.

I added rdfind and symlinks to my Build-Depends, and these lines in 
d/rules (in override_dh_auto_install) :

    rdfind -outputname /dev/null -makesymlinks true debian/fw4spl/
    symlinks -r -s -c debian/fw4spl

Does everything looks right for you ?

Thank you for your feedback.
