rm change causes configure annoyance

rm 4.1.9 has a change (bug, feature, yet unknown) that causes it to prompt
interactively for dangling symlinks (at least on my Linux box).

So, when running a2ps' configure, I get the following:

+ touch conftestfile
+ ln -s conftestfile conftestfile1
++ eval /usr/bin/file conftestfile1
+ res=conftestfile1: symbolic link to conftestfile
++ eval /usr/bin/file -L conftestfile1
+ res=conftestfile1: empty
+ ac_cv_prog_file_link_option= -L
+ break
+ rm conftestfile conftestfile1
rm: remove symbolic link `conftestfile1'? 

That rm should probably be an rm -f like everywhere else.
