It's not clear whether you're talking about links in the respository or
in your working directory.  If you're talking about links in the
repository, *DON'T DO IT* -- it completely subverts CVS's locking
protocol and may well corrupt your repository.  If you're talking about
links in the working directory, you'll just have to modify your build
process (e.g., a Makefile) to rebuild the links as needed.
