[openssl-users] Symlinks broken in 1.0.2e ?

Hi Viktor,

Thanks for the workaround.  After running your code I now see this:

cast.h -> openssl-1.0.2e/../../crypto/cast/cast.h
openssl-1.0.2e -> .

Which is still different than 1.0.2d:

cast.h -> ../../crypto/cast/cast.h

Are these new symlinks here to stay or were they included in the in 
error?  What will 1.0.2f look like in this regard?

I need to merge 1.0.2e into a vendor branch in svn and I can foresee 
these symlink changes causing me a lot of grief.
