Is there another way to get this working? I'ld hate to have to resort to monkeypatching distutils.
Well, you could have the symlinks go the other way around, I suppose. ;-)
In theory I could, but I doubt the designers who work with this structure will be able to deal with symlinks.
Alternately, you could write a "file finder" plugin for setuptools, or see whether one of the git plugins for setuptools fixes the problem.
setuptools-git did not support this, but luckily that was easily fixed (see https://github.com/wichert/setuptools-git/commit/8528d58975c595b64eea9e7e672... ).
