Summary0005177: cmake -E create_symlink issues
DescriptionCurrently, create_symlink does not quite work like copy or ln -s in unix.

cmake -E create_symlink file dir/

will not create a symlink inside dir/.

Also, create_symlink seems to incorrectly be a NOP on windows. Under Vista, create_symlink should create a symlink (new Vista feature). Under XP or older, it should behave as copy.
TagsNo tags attached.
