[vlc-devel] [PATCH] do not put symlinks in the .tar.bz2

That seems odd to me to have symlinks inside a prebuilt contrib. It should
not install anything outside of the contrib folder. So even that's used for
some odd reasons, the impact will only be a slightly bigger contrib
.tar.bz2 with symlink copied as real files. Or am I missing something ?
