Bug Description

In libssl-dev for both Precise and Saucy packages for libssl-dev, there is a broken link:
# ls -l /usr/share/doc/libssl-dev/changelog.gz
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 27 Jan 8 12:48 /usr/share/doc/libssl-dev/changelog.gz -> ../libssl1.0.0/changelog.gz
# ls -l /usr/share/doc/libssl1.0.0/changelog.gz
ls: cannot access /usr/share/doc/libssl1.0.0/changelog.gz: No such file or directory

I have verified this in both releases while trying to debug a failing build of a 3rd party library that links against these. Build works in Precise, fails in Saucy. Was looking to see what changed.

I'm going to mark #1489207 as a duplicate of this bug because they're very close to each other and possibly actually completely related. I'm copying below the details from that bug:

$ zcat /usr/share/doc/openssl/changelog.gz

This seems to be caused by #1895799 which would be a bug in pkgstripfiles.
