bug#30655: xset(1) not accepting symlink to font path

When I follow the manual at
I get the message that there is something wrong with the directory I'm
trying to add it:

address@hidden ~$ xset +fp ~/.guix-profile/share/fonts/truetype
xset:  bad font path element (#0), possible causes are:
    Directory does not exist or has wrong permissions
    Directory missing fonts.dir
    Incorrect font server address or syntax
address@hidden ~$ ls -l ~/.guix-profile/share/fonts/truetype/fonts.dir 
lrwxrwxrwx 2 root root 84 Jan  1  1970 
/home/gast/.guix-profile/share/fonts/truetype/fonts.dir -> 
address@hidden ~$ xset +fp 

The last command exits with code 0.  Apparently, xset(1) does not want
me to add symlink(2)s that point to valid directories.
