           Summary: <symlink> cant create a symlink over a file, whereas ln
                    -sf does allow you
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.7Alpha (nightly)
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Optional Tasks
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: stevel@apache.org


if you create a file with <touch>, you can't link over it using <symlink>, but
ln -sf lets you do it quite happily.

  <target name="testCreateOverFile" depends="init" if="unix">
    <touch file="${build.dir}/link3" />
    <symlink overwrite="true" link="${build.dir}/link3"
        resource="${file_ref}"/>
  </target>

We should resort to using ln -sf to force through actions if overwrite=true, and
downgrade this fault a verbose message
