Linked in Files

Does this solution work if you add existing items as linked files? All of the assemblies and and aspx pages/etc will be in other solutions but I want to be able to link the files into WSP Builder and create the package without having to manually place the files there.

WSPBuilder only reads the project folder stucture and ignores the Visual Studio project file, therefore you have copy every file that is linked before building the WSP package.

I've managed to get linked files to work by creating a simple tool that runs as a PreBuild task and copies the linked files.
