Hardlink conversion from Linux to Windows

Hi,

We have a project that was originally created under Linux. The top
level directory was populated using hardlinks and the entire structure
was checked into a repository. I am now trying to check this structure
out onto a windows machine but the hardlinks are not being translated
into something that windows understands. Each hardlink is replaced with
a text file that says where the target file is e.g.:

link ../runup/device_m.v

Actually, it seems there is a chain of links. If I look at the file
specified above I get:

link ../analog/model/device.v

Obviously I can't compile this - I need to get all the "real" files into
the top level directory - I'd have to follow the chain of links to get
to the real file, then copy that file back to the top level directory.
This will be tedious for the 100 or so files at the top level. Is there
any automated way of doing this in tortoisesvn??

Cheers
Julian
