drat, should have read your link before commenting.
I'm not sure how ok it is to add a dep to symlinks for
fontpackages-devel. It looks harmless enough, but is this package even
in all our spins?

I suppose if I change the templates to use the symlinks command to
avoid the rpmlint warning, I need to notify FPC at least (even if it's
a minor change, it's still a guidelines change)
