The difference is that they are installed into the build environment and
not into a N900.

But the point being made was that the buildbot and the N900
_both_ have the /opt -> /home/opt symlink and that this symlink is
causing dpkg to not install a optified package.  That can't be true.

There clearly is something different about the buildbot which is causing
trouble, but it doesn't look like it is dpkg having trouble with
symlinks and directories.
