These are actually symlinks from /usr/bin -> target and then they
should be correct.

These two are wrong because there ain't such thing as a shared gnat
library, but they are installed during gcc installation. I'll see if I
can fix it.

This one is bogus. It should be /usr/include/X11 -> and points to the
actual X11 header directory.

These are really wrong. Report to the maintainer, please.

Which package are these from? Probably a packaging error? Report to
the maintainer, please.
