Isn't this is more about source code that contain symlinks with
non-existent endpoints and file system loops? In our case, when we
changed modes and ownership of files in a directory it really makes
no difference to follow a symlink to a file/directory that the find
command will eventually come to anyway (if the target is inside the
source tarball). I can't see a problem with leaving out the -L
myself, but perhaps I'm missing something?
