symlinks and --compare-dest option

Hi all!
I want to sync/copy a tree from a remote system to my local computer.
Let 's say they are completly synced. When I do
rsync /new-storage --compare-dest=/ -a -v
As expected rsync does not copy the files but copies/recreate the
symlinks in the new folder.
Is there a way to suppress this (the creation of the links) when they
are the same?
