You cant use Ant's tar to create a RPM package if you want symbolic links in the
tar file. It is probably too hard/non-portable to pick them up from the
filesystem, but we ought to support a <symlink> entry into tar archives that
lets you declare a link in the archive itself. 

-no, I dont know what we should do when untarring.

The short term workaround is to use the unix tar command
