"find <mirror> -follow >/dev/null" will give you a list of all broken
symlinks. Pipeing that through grep and sed and using wget you can
download them. Should be far less than the complete hamm.


for i in 'find <mirror> -follow -name "*.deb" 2>&1 >/dev/null | grep slink | sed s/slink/hamm/'; do wget -r ftp://debian/$i ; done

That should download all files that are unresolved symlinks from slink 
to hamm.

May the Source be with you.
