Neither of the issues I raised here
appear to have been addressed.  prepare.sh will still attempt to create
symbolic links on systems that don't support them.

Related to the above, is the new verison of the collector arranged in
such a way that the source distribution will build on all systems?

When I last looked at this branch there seemed to be a bunch of new tool
dependencies, for example libtool.  Is this still the case?  If so, what
are the new dependencies?
