[bug] (1.1.0rc4) setting access time on symlinks

Dear great Subversion developers,

'svn export' balks trying to set the timestamp on symlinks that
point to nonexistent files. (This includes files that don't *yet*
exist, but would later in the same export (i.e., downloaded
lexicographically later).)

Basically, Subversion shouldn't set access time at all on
symlinks.

E.g.:

mkdir /tmp/q1 ; cd /tmp/q1
svn mkdir $REPOS/foo ; svn co $REPOS/foo ; cd foo
ln -s b a
svn add a ; svn ci -m ''
# error below results even if 'b' is in the repo.

mkdir /tmp/q2 ; cd /tmp/q2
svn export $REPOS/foo

svn: Can't set access time of 'foo/a': No such file or directory

Karl
