Well, if somebody is interested in writing some configure magic,
configure might actually detect if they are all on the same fs and only
enable gb_Deliver_HARDLINK then. That wont prevent breakages if
somebody fiddles around with his environment after running configure,
but one could argue he is on his own in that case anyway.

Any takers for adding such logic to configure? Should I add a EasyTask?

Best Regards,
