I didn't read anything letting assume that a source cannot be a symlink
to a directory. So it can be done manually.
As far I remember, I got this issue one time, when I manually symlinked
the kernel linux directory in my $startdir directory to a shared copy.

Although it's not strictly recommended (we lack of official
recommendation?), this way works in all cases. I have to confess that I
have smoothly switched all my relative path to full path since I got the
previous issue.
