Re: [isabelle] isabelle build -l, I/O error with ML-files on indirection through ROOTS file or -d option

I found the following workaround to this problem:

Just place symbolic links to the ML-files at the places where 
isabelle build -l
seems to expect them, according to the error message. This blows up your
directory structure, creating meaningless directories, but at least
listing of dependencies seems to work, the symbolic links do not even
occur in the dependencies listing.
