How do I batch-export all the content contained in symbolic links? (and then delete them all)

view story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – So as an alternative to Recursive scp without following links or creating a giant tar file? (this could be an emergency since the remote files could be deleted any time soon), I'm thinking of deleting all my symbolic links. But then I would like to batch-export them all somewhere so that I can restore them once I'm done with the scp file copying. (HowTos)
