I don't think Roy was suggesting you use symbolic links at all - they
don't really exist in Windows. He was suggesting that you create a
set of hook scripts that do nothing except call a centralised hook
script that does the real work e.g.

@echo off
c:\centralisedhookdir\real_precommit_hook.bat %1% ....

Another possibility is putting your hooks directory and your conf
directory under version control and exporting them into each
repository. You may even be able to check them out into each
repository although the svn server might get confused by the .svn
directories.

EDIT:

I tried putting the conf directory of a throwaway repository into its
own repository and it seems the .svn directory doesn't upset things -
at least using the file:/// protocol.
