symlinks on vfat

@Thomas: One more thing check: symlinks will not be created on vfat destinations when installing with ipkg on the Iliad. This might cause some libraries to be broken. (I had to repair this for Lua). You can check this by installing manually via ssh: ipkg gives an error message...

EDIT: Just discovered that tar can dereference symlinks when packing ('h' option). This converts symlink to copies. Handy because symlinks are not supported on vfat

Happy scripting!

PS: I decided to let my lua.ipk install evrything in /mnt/free/_local/, with the intention to run be run from there (without symlinks in /usr/local). The install size is less than 1 MB, and my /mnt/free has 100MB free...
