Issue #271 duplicate

distribute doesn't seem to handle symbolic links in source distributions

Anonymous created an issue

For example, it can't install

http://pypi.python.org/packages/source/z/zc.zkzopeserver/zc.zkzopeserver-0.3.0.tar.gz#md5=ffef36fc3f346a85031d3c9fa556333c

because the README.txt in the root of the distribution is a symbolic link.

This distribution builds fine with setuptools.

Tested in 0.6.14, 0.6.20 and 0.6.24
