Description Zoraze Ali 2015-02-25 10:33:25 EST
I have noticed a short-cut to a folder "figure" in
/ns-3-dev/doc/manual/source/ & /ns-3-dev/doc/tutorial/source/. It cause
an error while decompressing a compressed ns-3-dev repository.  I think the short-cuts are unnecessary. 

Kindly have a look.

These links are there to facilitate building of the latex document directly from the 'source' directory.  If we remove them, the figures are not located.

However, the model library documentation uses a different approach, to copy the source and figures to a 'source-temp' directory and build from there.  I can clone that approach over to the others.

The Portuguese tutorial doesn't use the symlink but its figures are broken, I discovered today.
