Recently, I notice messages like this when doing profile operations:

creating manual page database for 49 packages...
find-files: /gnu/store/0y3qrzzwfxf601g885967wcringvnw69-gimp-2.8.18/share/man/man1/gimp-console.1: No such file or directory

The file in question is a symlink:
$ ls -l /gnu/store/0y3qrzzwfxf601g885967wcringvnw69-gimp-2.8.18/share/man/man1/gimp-console.1
lrwxrwxrwx 5 root root 21 Dec 31  1969 /gnu/store/0y3qrzzwfxf601g885967wcringvnw69-gimp-2.8.18/share/man/man1/gimp-console.1 -> gimp-console-2.8.1.gz

This find-files (used in the manual-database hook) message is caused by the fact the gimp-console-2.8.1.gz file doesn`t exist (IOW, the gimp-console.1 symlink is broken). It would be nice to investigate is this Gimp problem comes from upstream or as a result of our build process.
