Just a missing slash, who would have thought of that… Thanks for the nice explanation!

The man page says that --link-dest option, if relative, is relative to the target directory. In my case it's absolute. Even making it relative to the target directory does not make this work.

cp -al is unfortunately not available on my system (Mac OS X 10.6). I'll use pax instead...

Thanks — actually, I might as well use pax as shown in my comment above, which seems easier.

-H doesn't work. I have no hardlinks to preserve in my source tree, I just want a simple copy of my source tree where in the copy, all files are hardlinked to the original files. Sorry in my original question was unclear…
