"Split" directories aren't symlinks. For example, boost/detail is a split
directory, in that some of its contents are in libs/this, and others in
libs/that. Long term, all directories except the top level boost/ would be
symlinks, but we aren't there yet.
Files should always be symlinks and never copies though. I don't know how in
John's installation the files ended up being copies.
