The '-d' flag is not portable. I see that AIX 5.1 and MacOS X 10.3.7
don't support that flag. Both systems do support Un*x style symlinks
of course.

Unfortunately, I've observed that 'cp' flags are very inconsistent
across
systems. The only flags that appear consistent to me across AIX 5.2,
MacOS 10.3.7, and a Linux RH 7.3 system are '-p', '-R', '-i', and '-f'.
