well, there would be two ways of doing it.

1) don't point links back directly - point links at a download page
   which lists mirrors.  this has better long term benefit in my opinion.

2) have some clearly defined standard for links so that mirror sites
   can either search and replace after mirroring, or in their virtual
   web have a RedirectPermanent or rewrite rule that converts absolute
   references (e.g to a known working local one.
