looks extremely dirty and fragile

people really should really learn to build packages which either 
*cleanly* install far away from the system (/usr/local/) or just 
override distribution packages with a higher internal version

such packages install any needed symlinks and file as needed and 
whenever you have to enter the command "ln" manually your package is wrong

no idea how to build on Debian, on Redhat systems rpmbuild is not hard 
to learn and works over many years and dist-upgrades without issues
