            Bug ID: 36237
           Summary: TestTargetSymbolsSepDebugSymlink fails when run
           Product: lldb
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P
         Component: All Bugs
          Assignee: lldb-dev at lists.llvm.org

The root problem is in Platform::Install.
When given a symlink, it will try to create the same symlink on the target. 
However, Platform::CreateSymlink function is not implemented, but even if it
was, the target is unlikely to contain anything at the place where the symlink
points to. And even if it contain something, it would most likely be a
different object than the debugger will obtain when it resolves the symlink

I think that a more reasonable behavior here would be to copy the file contents
