{tar01,tar02}/Makefile.am use hardcoded ln -s

tar01/Makefile.am and tar02/Makefile.am use hardcoded "ln -s".

This is multiply broken:

a) This relies upon host systems supporting symlinks.
This is an assumption which does not apply on all hosts. Hosts or underlying filesystems might not support them.

b) This relies upon the host having a "ln" command. An assumption which does not apply on all hosts.
