/usr/lib/ should be a symlink to /usr/lib/

/usr/share/java/opencv.jar should probably be a symlink to /usr/share/java/opencv4/opencv-440.jar

At the moment, neither exists, and apps like SikuliX(aur/sikulixide-bin) seem to expect them.

It looks like AUR/opencv-java creates both of these symlinks, so they probably really should be there.

From what I gather OpenCV did not have java bundled before but does as of a recent version.
This task depends upon

I disagree with the "should" statements given that the reason is that some binary blobs expect them. But Debian and Fedore ship them, so oh well...

The PKGBUILD adds the build path to the symlinks...

/usr/lib/ broken symbolic link to /build/opencv/pkg/opencv/usr/lib/
