dependency_script: cp rather than symlink to $DOWNLOAD_CACHE
When the downloaded file is an archive which gets unpacked in the working directory, this is harmless. However, when the download file is moved directly to $INSTALL_DIR (e.g. JAR files) this leaves the installation with a symlink pointing at the cache - which might get deleted. Also, some tools will look for their own dependencies relative to the real file (and not the symlink) which will point them at $DOWNLOAD_CACHE rather than $INSTALL_DIR.
