Yes, this change is in 1.2.3.  I worked on the bug you were experiencing
(symbolic links to zikula install meant ZLanguage was unable to locate the
locale files).  This was fix upstream and patched into your local install.
 We release Zikula 1.2.3 around 5-6 weeks ago with this change.

I'd also like to point out that for reasons I am not quite sure of, FI has
taken months and months when it should have taken just a few days - people
regularly deploy vastly complex Zikula sites in a matter of days.  Future
upgrades will be quite painless I can assure you, but I would really like to
do assist in the packaging process.  I think it would be far better (broken
record again), if we put all the RPM building on our CI server, then a large
portion of the packaging work would be done.  All that would remain is
testing and tweaking.  Since tweaks would be made to the build XML it means
future packaging would be even more painless.
