Do we even have that anywhere (/run as symlink)?

poldek:/all-avail> desc -ll FHS | grep /run
mode            size	name
drwxr-xr-x         6	/run
drwxr-xr-x         6	/var/run/

And FHS.spec commit 4e9a06c31d tells me it was so from the very start.

Our current systemd package has var-run.mount bind mounting /run there,
so in this case is just a matter of removing that file and symlinking
/var/run on next boot.

Don't know how it looks for SysVinit running systems, but can't be more
complicated IMHO.
