Follow-up Comment #17, bug #56410 (project findutils):

Maybe similar to what GNU coreutils' ls?



    When showing file information for a symbolic link, show information for
the file
    the link references rather than the link itself. However, even with this
    ls still prints the name of the link itself, not the name of the file that
    link points to.

Obviously, this has to be extended for find(1) because also the
tests like -size act on the de-referenced file (if it is a resolvable file).
