  Shouldn't SymLinksIfOwnerMatch set OPT_SYM_LINKS|OPT_SYM_OWNER?

No.  The code which actually depends on these options handles the case
of OPT_SYM_OWNER being set alone correctly.  If OPT_SYM_LINKS is set as
well, that will actually *override* OPT_SYM_OWNER --- thereby breaking
it.  The consequences of this at the command level are counterintuitive,
and perhaps should be fixed; however, a plain

   Options SymLinksIfOwnerMatch

will get the owner-matching behavior all on its own, and this should
not break.
