Comment:

 ATM symlinks in the packages directories aren't supported. An exception
 are the chroot environments haikuporter sets up, which are handled
 differently by the package daemon (no dependency resolution).

 Moreover, the /boot/system packagefs is already mounted during the boot
 process, long before the initial userland process is started. So,
 regardless of when the mount server is started, it will be too late
 already.

 Changing to enhancement. And this certainly isn't a feature that needs to
 be in alpha 5.
