If the package installs a symbolic link /usr/share/doc/pkg1 -> pkg2, then pkg1 and pkg2 must both come from the same source package.

The best solution is probably to stop symlinking the /usr/share/doc directory for this package and instead include a real /usr/share/doc/pkg1 directory within pkg1 with the appropriate contents (such as the copyright and changelog.Debian.gz files).
