            Bug ID: 21033
           Summary: symlinks in tarball
           Product: clang
           Version: trunk
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P
         Component: -New Bugs

Both http://llvm.org/releases/3.5.0/cfe-3.5.0.src.tar.xz and
http://llvm.org/releases/3.4.2/cfe-3.4.2.src.tar.gz contain symlinks in the
tarballs. These cause issues when extracting on Windows using the MSYS version
of tar:

tar -xf cfe-3.5.0.src.tar.xz
tar: cfe-3.5.0.src/test/Driver/Inputs/multilib_64bit_linux_tree/usr/bin/as:
Cannot create symlink to 'x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu-as': No such file or

and several more very similar errors.

Would there be a way of creating these symlinks during the course of running
the test suite, and only on platforms where symlinks are fully supported
(without needing to mess with security settings), instead of having them
included in the tarball?
