Hello, Automake gurus.

Another simple patch from my side: when '--copy' given to '--add-missing', copy the standard files even if symlinks already exist.

Basically, the patch adds "if --copy given and a link exists, do NOT exit" (+ a double-check of the object type if that would be needed on some systems).

This may simplify the things for some users, although you may as well update the documentation to say that giving "--force-missing" would produce the same result.
