Broken symlinks in Cups

Cups installs the manpages for "reject" and "cupsdisable" as symlinks to 
"accept" and "cupsenable" respectively. As the Cups installation also 
gzips its manpages, and BLFS includes a suggestion to unzip them, doing 
so results in broken symlinks as /usr/share/man/man8/reject.8.gz points 
to non-existent accept.8.gz, and the same for cupsdisable.8.gz -> 
cupsenable.8.gz. The instructions to gunzip the cups manpages need 
additional commands to remove these broken symlinks and replace them 
with new symlinks reject.8 -> accept.8 and cupsdisable.8 -> cupsenable.8.
