So this whole ancient fuss is about
	++    pglob->gl_lstat = Lstat;
or not? I swear this issue was resolved more than 5y ago.

If the patch were solely to override ->gl_lstat in rpmbuild, then I could
carry the patch. Generally changing the default gl_stat to use Lstat isn't
the right fix imho.

The packaging issue is also easily avoided by using %files -f manifest instead of glob's
with symlinks.
