Your question is probably answered in the book. At least it was answered a 
month ago in the CVS version, but I can't keep up with the current changes. A 
quote from my local copy of the book:

Now they seem to replace these symlinks with a patch, but I cannot see the 
relevant "CVS commit" message in my mail.

BTW I still strongly recommend gimp-print over everything else on HP DeskJets. 
You don't need Omni since it supports DeskJets only in pcl3 compatibility 
mode. Gimp-Print gives the highest printing quality, even better than the 
"official" hpijs driver.
