The package contains a hardlink in
/etc or across different
directories. This might not work at all if directories are on different
filesystems (which can happen anytime as the system administrator sees fit),
certain filesystems such as AFS don't even support cross-directory hardlinks
For configuration files, certain editors might break hardlinks, and so does dpkg in certain cases.
A better solution might be using symlinks here.
