I have no idea whether xorriso-0.4.0 supports hard links as it seems to be 
nonportable and thus testing would be hard ;-)

mkisofs supports hard links correctly by default since August 2006 but the 
problem is that the Linux kernel has no working hard link support for ISO-9660 
or Rock Ridge.

I recommend you to use a recent mkisofs


as mkisofs grants you that the hard links you created on the media will work 
on platforms that correctly support hard links (e.g. Solaris).
