[Libreoffice] [PATCH] download run twice creates foo/foo symlink

If ./download is run twice:

 - the first time it creates e.g. symlink ure connectivity -> clone/libs-core/connectivity

 - the second time it creates a symlink named connectivity/connectivity
   (thus clone/libs-core/connectivity/connectivity) pointing to
   clone/libs-core/connectivity, that is pointing to
   ROOT_OF_SOURCE_TREE/clone/libs-core/connectivity/clone/libs-core/connectivity .

That second symlink is not what was intended and is a dangling
symlink. The attached patch fixes that, telling ln to always create
the symlink as named on the command line, and to never implicitly
create a symlink named after the target in the directory named on the
command line.
