I've discovered that this patch introduces a nasty failure case! If you have a relative symlink pointing to a directory that's alphabetically sorted after the symlink, and files inside the symlink, 'tar -x' won't be able to create those files because the symlink target won't exist yet.

I'll rework this to only affect shutil.make_archive(), and to avoid hitting this bug.
