Summary

It appears this was changed from ln to use install in rS245752. I noticed
this because my buildenv was setting INSTALL=install -U -M METALOG
and then these links fail to be created with the following error:
install: open
METALOG: Permission denied

Event Timeline

It might be worth a comment making clear this is in objdir since bare use of ln is almost always a bug.
