if the Distutils bail out on broken links we will run into problems with
Debian packages. I am calling the dh_undocumented script which generates
the link
debian/tmp/usr/share/man/man1/linkchecker.1.gz -> ../man7/undocumented.7.gz
which is broken only temporarily, but not after installing the generated
.deb package.

Well, I will have to make symlinks with absolute pathnames..
