I have vhosts set up using symlinks, so I know it will at least work that
way. I was running out of space on /var for my developer stuff, so I made
/var/www/developer a symlink to a directory on a much larger drive. The
difference here is that the main document root /var/www is not a symlink,
only the virtual host directories below it are.  That may be the key to
making it work, using vitual hosts.
