Symlinks becomes absolute when copying a folder with symlinks #417

I had a folder /users/igor/Desktop/AWSDK.framework with ASWDK being a symlink to Versions/Current/AWSDK.

So the content of users/igor/Desktop/AWSDK.framework/AWSDK was "Versions/Current/AWSDK"

O copied then folder to /users/igor/Projects/AWSDK.framework and the content of users/igor/Projects/AWSDK.framework/AWSDK became "/users/igor/Desktop/AWSDK.framework/Versions/Current/AWSDK"

So copying a folder with Marta changed a relative symlink to an absolute one pointing to a "wrong" location.

It took me hours to figure out why my Xcode builds fail (I deleted the original folder)
