I'm not sure how portable -f as an option to ln is, or cp (the fallback 
if autoconf can't find ln on a system, afaik).

I've done what the gcc developers seem to do with LN_S in their 
Makefile.am files, and added || true to the LN_S line to ignore failures 
from LN_S.

So, if you've got some cycles to burn, please update and try again ;)
