dgit import: Avoid making broken symlinks in ..
In most cases we could carry on and fail later. But creating a broken symlink is undesirable, particularly because it might prevent dgit from trying to make a non-broken symlink pointing elsewhere in future (or prevent dget from downloading the file). Even worse, if the dsc is in .. but an absolute path was provided, we would make a circular symlink! Signed-off-by: Ian Jackson <>
