That doesn't do the trick. As the package I'm having this problem with
(lesstif) is using libtool, I already have a set of directories, with the
proper symlinks. Is there an easy way to reorder it so that the symlinks
follow the files they point to? I tried tar-ing it in the correct order,
removing the directories and untarring, but ran into diskspace problems.

I'd be interested to hear from him. There are so many pseudos around taking 
his name in vain.
