Hm.  Does it work if you build in the source tree instead of remotely?
Maybe that's good enough to get 3.81 out the door.

The reality is the symlink thing is just a hack.  The right answer is to
rejigger the test suite code so that it can be run remotely without
requiring any symlinks.  I just haven't gotten around to that yet.

Well, it's easy enough to change the "rm -f" to "rm -rf" in the
check-regression rule.  But, I don't know that this will solve the
entire problem?
