I have a chroot devel environment like this
                     / root/                       - srch chroot build 
made with mkarchroot
                     /        /trinity.source   - a symlink ie ln -s 
                     / copy                        - made by makechrootpkg
                     / pkgbuild                  - where the pkgbuild live
                     / trinity.source           - a subversion repo 
checkout of source code

I then fetch the subversion rev level to use as the pkgver number like this


   cd ${_source}/${_module}

This gives me an error

/build/PKGBUILD: line 25: cd: /trinity.source/kdepim: Too many levels of 
symbolic links

I want to symlink the svn repo to inside the chroot so when 
makechrootpkg -c -r <chrootdir> creates the clean copy it doesn't have 
to copy the entire svn source code to the clean copy, as it is almost 2G 
is size.

  Anyone know of a way to get around this?
