This means that rsync is trying to set the timestamp on the symlink to
match the modify-time on the source symlink. The initial dot tells you
that no "transfer" is happening (i.e. no change in symlink value). Some
filesystems don't allow a symlink's mtime to be set, so rsync can keep
trying to set the time and never be able to succeed. You may want to use
this option: --omit-link-times (-J).
