I was thinking more in terms of adding an attribute to the delete task

<delete treatsymlinksasfiles="yes" dir="build"/>

But, it does need to interact with the fileset "symfollowsymlinks" 
attribute in some way to
make things consistent, or perhaps a "treatsymlinksasfiles" attribute to 
filesets, which
<delete> sets if  "treatsymlinkasfiles" is set.
