Jim, this reminds me that you may want to add a switch to control this 
behavior. Even if DESTDIR is respected, its in the way when building rpm 
packages, since you cannot add symlinks to non existent targets in that 
package (to my humble knowledge). Therefore my spec contains:

in %prep section:
sed -i 's/if kde_version >= 0x030500/if 0 and kde_version >= 0x030500/g' \ 

[ ! -L /opt/kde3/lib/libkonsolepart.so ] && { 
ln -sf /opt/kde3/lib/kde3/libkonsolepart.so /opt/kde3/lib/libkonsolepart.so

[ -L /opt/kde3/lib/libkonsolepart.so ] && {
    rm -f /opt/kde3/lib/libkonsolepart.so
