[gtk-osx-users] Preserving symlinks in bundle for themes

Hi John,

I've been playing with GTK3 version of Geany (GTK3 seems to be getting in a usable shape finally) and theming support. I used the Papirus icon theme, removed icons not needed for Geany and got to the size of about 6MB, which is acceptable. However, when creating bundle, all symlinks within the theme get replaced with copies of the files and the resulting size of the theme in bundle becomes about 50MB. This is by far the largest portion of the bundle.

Is there some way to prevent this? It's clear that the bundler tries to avoid situations when symlinks lead to stuff outside the bundle but with icons, symlinks are always relative to the icon theme directory so having them in the bundle should be safe.

I think there could be some option of the <icon-theme> tag in the bundle settings file so users who know that symlinks don't point outside the bundle can use it to keep the symlinks.

What do you think?
