Non-executable binaries, non-readable man-pages, file with size 0 and permission "0"?

Seems like fundamentally messed up packaging to me.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
fakeroot-1.20.2-3.fc24.x86_64

How reproducible:
see above.
Comment 1 Ralf Corsepius 2016-01-27 23:44:54 EST
The same with fakeroot-1.20.2-3.fc22, fakeroot-1.20.2-3.fc23.
Comment 2 Dominik 'Rathann' Mierzejewski 2016-01-28 12:52:52 EST
Thanks for the report, Ralf, but if you look more closely, you'll see that these are all symlinks maintained by alternatives and the files are perfectly readable once the package is installed.

rpmlint fails here.
