[maemo-developers] Error installing optified packages in Fremantle SDK

I've succesfully built a new version of my packages and optified them, but
now if I try to install them in the SDK to see if they works as expected
before pushing them to extras-testing, all I've got is:

dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/blablabla.deb (--unpack):
 trying to overwrite `/opt', which is also in package base-files
dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (Broken pipe)

I've made through all the steps related to /opt in the SDK when I installed
the final version as described here [1]:

[sbox-FREMANTLE_X86: ~] >rm /targets/FREMANTLE_X86/opt
[sbox-FREMANTLE_X86: ~] >mkdir /targets/FREMANTLE_X86/opt

but, still:

[sbox-FREMANTLE_X86: ~] > v /opt
lrwxrwxrwx  1 cthulhu cthulhu 9 Oct  6 16:46 /opt -> /home/opt

and, of course, /home/opt doesn't exist.

Can someone point me to what I'm doing wrong here? Or is there some
