    Then, the following sequence of commands (as address@hidden) will do
    the trick:

        cd /export/root/aclient/some
        ln -s /other/file symlink

    Note that I type "/other/file" when issuing a command on ourserver,
    where the file is actually known as /export/root/aclient/other/file!

I think that is a bug in NFS.  This symbolic link won't work properly
when used locally.

However, I've changed my mind about the specific question of
how to handle

    (make-symbolic-link "/address@hidden:/name/of/file" "/path/to/target")

There is only one thing it can possibly mean, which is
to link to a file on /address@hidden:, so I guess it is ok
to imagine that /address@hidden: is present.
