Google page rank and 'header' redirects

P: n/a
If I have a links page that uses php header calls,
for each link, to jump to an external page, does
Google see those links as "internal to my site"
or do they get counted as links to the redirect?

IE: people ask me to exchange links all the time.
Sometimes (usually not) I do it, but always with a
link to in interal-to-my site file that has a

header("Location: http://someothersite.com");

So, in other words, in Google terms, do those
people get the page rank credit they are seeking,
when I do it that way?

The Google searchbot loads webpages like a web browser would and follows any
links it finds. Even if the subsequent pages are redirects. It doesn't store
the redirects, just the final destination.
