Allow guest OS to create sym link within same folder share if host OS supports it.

Host type: Mac OS X


I use OS X and have an Ubuntu guest running. I would like to edit my code on OS X and just use the the guest OS to compile it through a shared folder.

This project uses a proprietary Linux tool chain to build, so I need the guest OS. The build system makes extensive use of symbolic links, but the shared folder mounted file system doesn't allow me to create them. Both both OS's understand symbolic links.

Can this be supported in an enhancement? Thanks.
