Does this still occur in the 7.11-rc3 tarballs?  I added the
- --dereference option to tar to make it not include the symlinks.  If
that works, I'll cherry-pick the change to 7.10.  If that doesn't work,
can you suggest a better fix?

I would like to do a 7.10.4, but I'm going to wait until after 7.11.
There are some additional fixes in 7.11 that I'd like to pick over.
