If you mean how to check them in, don't.  There used to be support for
it but it caused a lot of problems, has been broken for awhile, and is
unlikely to be fixed.  Use a script or make them part of one of your
makefile targets (perhaps 'make install'?) if it is important.

A script could be as simple as 'find -type l |xargs tar cvf - |bzip2 -c
>links.tar.bz2'.  Then keep that file checked in.
