Bug Description

After a fresh install of the r-cran-rserve package (Version: 1.7-3-2 amd64), the symbolic link in /usr/lib/R/bin/Rserve points to an invalid file: ‘Rserve’ -> ‘../site-library/Rserve/Rserve’.

As a consequence, it is not possible to start RServe from the "R CMD" utility.

The symbolic link is void, and the "R CMD RServe ..." returns an error

The symbolic link points to a script, and the "R CMD RServe ..." allows to start the service

It is possible to start the service by calling the RServe() function in an R session.
