-L doesn't appear to work in Solaris 8 either. However, the latest relevant
standard, ``The Open Group Base Specifications Issue 6, IEEE Std 1003.1-2001''
lists both -h and -L and says (at the end):
The -h operand is added for symbolic links, and access permission
requirements are clarified for the -r, -w, and -x operands to align with
the IEEE P1003.2b draft standard.
The normative text is reworded to avoid use of the term "must" for
The -L and -S operands are added for symbolic links and sockets.
