Description (last modified by embray)

Using sdh_install to install a symlink whose target is not yet valid (e.g. is a path to a file that will be installed to $SAGE_LOCAL but is not yet installed) then it will fail, since the check test -e in sdh_install dereferences symlinks.

Marking critical since this fix is needed for #26856.
