committing linked files

   I have a problem that I was trying to solve by checking in linked files
(ln -s) and wanted to know if anyone else knew of a better solution.

Problem:   I am working for a company that currently has a library of
designs under CVS control.  The next step is to use these designs in a
project also under CVS control, but deposited in a separate repository.
Currently I have created a common checkout directory to reference these
designs by linking the appropriate files into the new projects working
directory to ensure that the correct release is referenced.  However, when
I go to commit the linked files, the link is broken when the file is
checked back out.  I have considered creating another commit option to not
perform the checkout, which will probably work, but I was wondering if
there is a better way.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
