Re: Unix symbolic links.

I'm using a sun as the file server for a system I'm developing on the
Symbolics. When I compile the system, the Symbolics complains when
trying to access the system directory files. I believe it has to do
with the fact that one of the directory names for the pathname where my
system's files are stored is a symbolic link.
To prevent the problem, I've put the fully expanded directory spec in
the logical-pathname-host declaration, but I'd much rather use the
symbolic links. Any ideas?
[I've added CUSTOMER-REPORTS. Such problems such as this should go there.
Of course, they should only respond to sites with software maintenance!]
It isn't just Unix symbolic links that have such problems. We have a
system whose source files (on a LISPM) in the default system directory are
links to files in another directory. I don't compile that system so I
can't say what problems there are during compilation, but I do know that
when I try to write the system to a distribution tape, those files that
are links elsewhere aren't found. (The system then presumes they are
now deleted files.)
