 Log Message:
 PR/36275: john at iastate dot edu: tar -s modifies symlink targets
 - This is explained in a comment in pat_rep.c inside mod_name(). I did not
   want to change the default behavior, so I added another modifier "s" which
   when set, the pattern will not modify the symlink destination.
 - While here I fixed another bug that was introduced before by the fix in
   PR/35257 where the renaming was happening twice since we called rep_name
 - Finally if we are renaming hard of soft-link targets print the renames for
   those too.
