All these symlinks are added by the package. You can download an
upstream version from www.mediawiki.org to get the files in a single folder.

Being into svn is different than being into the release tarball.

You would do:
cd extensions
mkdir skins
cd skins
svn co
http://svn.wikimedia.org/svnroot/mediawiki/trunk/extensions/skins/Daddio/
Add to localsettings the line
 include "$IP/extensions/skins/Daddio/Daddio.php":

(the above way is extensible to other extensions)
For using the command svn you will need to have the subversion package
installed.

Dadio skin seems to expect itself being installed in
extensions/skin/Daddio. Sorry if the previous message mislead you.
