Work around broken ln on solaris as used in t8006
The test setup in uses "ln -sf" to overwrite an existing symlink. Unfortunately, both /usr/bin/ln and /usr/xpg4/bin/ln on solaris 9 don't properly handle -f and -s used at the same time. This caused the test setup and subsequent checks to fail. Instead, remove the symlink and then create a new one in the setup code. The upstream Solaris bug (fixed in 10, but not 9) is documented here: Signed-off-by: Ben Walton <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
