[opensuse-packaging] RPM how to change a directory to a link


when there is in foo-1.rpm a directory /somewhere/foo/ but
in foo-2.rpm it is a link /somewhere/foo -> /elsewhere/bar
then "rpm --upgrade foo" fails with
error: unpacking of archive failed on file /somewhere/foo:
cpio: rename failed - Is a directory

What is the officially blessed method to support such a change
in the software in the RPM package of such a software?

Assume that one cannot change the actual software.

Kind Regards
