Hi. I am trying to build a package "Carla"

I got rpmlint error "arch-dependent-file-in-usr-share":

[ 489s] Carla.x86_64: E: arch-dependent-file-in-usr-share (Badness:
590) /usr/share/carla/resources/zynaddsubfx-ui
[ 489s] This package installs an ELF binary in the /usr/share
hierarchy, which is
[ 489s] reserved for architecture-independent files.

I have couple of questions:
1) Is it possible or allowed to fix this by creating a symlink (to
binary) under /usr/share hierarchy?

2) Is such a violation of FHS acceptable in official openSUSE repositories?

Well, how about placing the binary in /usr/lib/carla/ for 32bit
and /usr/lib64/carla/ for 64bit ?

I'm unsure on the policy about placing the link to the binary into
/usr/share/carla/ , technically it should be OK.
