Ok. I am still looking into this. Checkpitches now links like this:

 CheckPitches -> ../../MainMenu/EntryMenu/MIDI/CheckPitches

I copied actions into another folder using cp -a. It preserves the link.
When I put this same command as a dist-hook in like this:

cp -a $(srcdir)/actions $(distdir)

It is turning the link into a copy. I am not sure why it is doing this.
I would think that this would do it. I am going to write to the automake
mailing list because if that does not work for us I don't know what I
need to do.
