Ah, the new files locations, I forgot..:-)

Indeed, as of now, the packages are renamed, but the locations are the
old ones (unless I missed something in Fabian's changes as we were
doing changes at the same time).

Sure, if we move the files around, we'll need to provide compatibility
symlinks, particularly for freefont because of the use by games (does
it happen often there that paths are hardcoded?).

I wonder what package should provide the symlinnks: the new one or the
transitional one?
