I think so (when you give --extract-only to the .run file, the Makefile in the resulting directory does try to delete /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.*), but maybe it either didn't or couldn't for some reason? In any case, just delete these files yourself -- no symlinks are needed (any compilations will find the right libs in /usr/lib).
