I guess you are aware of the fact that Java doesn't know about symlinks at all.

It may be possible to check whether ln is available as a command and execute
it if a symbolic link inside the archive is encountered, that's why I didn't
close this report as WONTFIX right away.

If you want to take a stab at it, look into the new <symlink> task in Ant's
CVS repository to get an idea of what is involved here.
