Most likely, the problem is with the file finder being used. Are you using a git plugin for setuptools, or simply listing everything in MANIFEST.in? If the former, it may be that the git plugin you're using simply doesn't support symlinks. If you're not using a git plugin, perhaps there is something amiss in the MANIFEST.in, and setuptools' built-in support for subversion is hiding the problem by picking up the symlinks.
I am not using a git (or other) plugin. I tried listing things in MANIFEST.in, for example using:
graft my/package/templates/ graft my/package/templates/libraries
unfortunately that had no effect: libraries was not included, not as symlink nor as a copy of the symlink target.
