Question about X build tactics.

Is there a big reason why lndir is not used instead of cp in the build

For reasons of disk space alone something along the lines of:

        mkdir $(SOURCE_TREE)
        lndir ../../$(SOURCE_TREE)-real $(SOURCE_TREE)/ ifndef NOT_BUILDING_X_SERVER
        # create source tree for static, debuggable XFree86 server
        mkdir $(SOURCE_TREE)-xserver-xfree86-dbg
        lndir ../../$(SOURCE_TREE)-real $(SOURCE_TREE)-xserver-xfree86-dbg/

Seems reasonable, are there any catches that I am missing? (Aside from
the minor bootstrapping problem as lndir is part of X.)

(Finally done classifying the patches for use with CVS, then fixing all
the ones that don't apply, now grumbling about disk space while trying
to build .debs)
