oops, note to self: try the newest version of a software before posting. symlink handling seems to have been fixed.

as the other poster had pointed out, wget cannot (at the moment) *delete* files on local copies that have been removed on remote server. this makes it useless for mirroring.
ftpcopy is simple to use, but i had tried a couple versions in the past and both of them mishandled symlinks, so i had to ditch ftpcopy for now. all the symlinks copied from the server become something like this:
CPAN.html -> .html -> authors/id/J/JO/JONO/cpan.html
ENDINGS -> NGS -> .cpan/ENDINGS
ls-lR.gz -> R.gz -> indices/ls-lR.gz
hope it will be fixed. i'd ilke to try it again.
