Apparently, VirtualBox does allow to create hard and soft links inside guest os on shared folders . Now the thing is I need to install a package that is creating hard links

Hardlink("lib/abc", "/vagrant/ab/src/.libs/abc") scons: * [lib/abc] Operation not permitted

I could get symlinks working using this in my vagrant file

config.vm.customize ["setextradata", :id, "VBoxInternal2/SharedFoldersEnableSymlinksCreate/v-root", "1"]

How can I do the same for hard links?
