Are you not able to create these symlinks at build time prior to the
rest of the build?

I see. What I've done in the past is to create the files under
something like `uname -s`/`uname -p`. Alternatively, if you have AFS
already in your infrastructure, it has a nifty @sys symlink which
points to a system-specific directory.
