This package httrack, may have some problems in itself. As far as I
can see from Google, 3.4[3-5] to higher also have this problem on
other distros. I can see gentoo bug and debian bug of this, too. So I
think the symlinks are created by upstream or whatsoever.

I did a major update to httrack days ago:

http://pkgs.fedoraproject.org/cgit/httrack.git/commit/?id=c77279fcf2844331483ed42df64b4737cab6ee27&context=3&ignorews=0&ss=0

You can see I didn't change any major things. Just spec cleanup,
remove obsoleted or not found files only.

Panu has some words at below places since 08', 3 of them are very interesting:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=433096
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=484240
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=975909

I believe I've received similar discussion emails in this year, too.

%pretrans solution is not mentioned in packaging scriptlet page of
wiki, I think we should add it before there comes a solution forever.

I've fixed the update problem, and uploaded them to:

SRPM: http://lab.cicku.me/httrack-3.47.27-1.fc21.src.rpm

RPM: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=5975150

Please test.

Now I meet new problem(to save the place I pasted them to fpaste):

Please tell me if this can be ignored or not...
