Follow-up Comment #2, bug #45037 (project wget):

Use -d to get
Unlinking README (symlink).

In ftp.c you will find those lines:
  /* Remove it if it's a link.  */
  remove_link (con->target);

This is done by purpose (I just can guess why: not to overwrite the content
the link points to).

The question is: is it a bug or a feature ? Should we just document this
behaviour (maybe it already is).
