The debian packager would use dh_link to set up the links when
packaging. I just read up on this. Also autotools will set the links
when doing a make install with something like this in the

$(LN_S) $(DESTDIR)/actions/menus/MainMenu/EntryMenu/MIDI/CheckPitches

A line like this would be entered for each link and the debian packager
would have to set all these links with dh_link. 

I can get started on this. I will modify and push this
