Johan Herland:

I believe a preferable way to manage dotfiles in Git, is to have a script that does the necessary setup/installation from the repo (that lives in some subdirectory of ~) and into ~.

Yeah, but then I have copies of the files, instead of having the files themselves under version control, meaning I need to copy them back to push changes back, or to merge them. That is undesirable :-/

I do have a setup script for the CVS repo, but it just sets the symlinks up.

The only solution I can see is to split the repo up into several parts, one for each sub-directory that I previously had symlinked. Not perfect, but I guess I can live with that.
