I strongly object to this ITP. This is unnecessary archive bloat.
A utility as simple and trivial as this should be included with
debianutils. Please convince the debianutils maintianer to include
readlink. A wishlist bug has already been filed (#40950). Until
then, use a copy of the program in your own package.
What's next? An ITP for "echo"?
