You're probably the first person to try the symlink syscall
via guestmount ...

Best thing is to try tracing what calls it's making:

http://libguestfs.org/guestmount.1.html#examples

ie:  guestmount [-a ... -m ...] --trace /mnt

Most likely is that I have reversed the parameters to the symlink call
somewhere along the line.
