You can't pick and choose the children of the symbolically linked parent 

What I would recommend is moving any file in the parent include folder 
to their own folder. Then create your include file at your virtual site, 
drop in your custom config file, then symlink all the child folders of 
the "master" include folder.

Hope that helps.
