Previously rsync was skipping the symlinks because you didn't specify
--links, so --safe-links had no effect. If you want it to transfer
symlinks as files, use -L (--copy-links). If you want it to duplicate
"safe" symlinks and copy "unsafe" links as files, specify --links with
--safe-links. If you want it to skip them, leave the various symlink
options off (and tolerate the skipping messages).
