Until about a year ago, I used to play the symlink game.  Then I read this
message, and haven't done it since.

If the directories weren't present, then you probably should have
installed the appropriate packages that put the correct versions of these
directories in place.  If they were present and you bypassed them, you
probably should have modified the makefile to reference the updated
directories explicitly.
