symutils is a collection of tools and libraries for managing symlinks, implemented in Go Programming Language. This one can became real handy if you're "tag"ging your files by means of creating symlinks under category-directories. Or just happen to have dozens of troublesome symlinks around.
replsym(1) finds symlinks pointing to a target, or targets described by a pattern, and replaces them with a given, new target.
lssym(1) looks for (common) symlinks under given directories
symfix(1) finds and (somewhat interactively) repairs broken symlinks.
xlocate(1) is an alternative to locate. Common options are (mostly) compatible with GNU locate.
dups(1) finds duplicate files with the same name, using a locate database. Can remove the dups, or convert them to links pointing to a chosen "origin" file.
You can install the tools using the go command. To install symfix for example, you can run
go get github.com/salviati/symutils/symfix
cmd/* needs revision in error/warning reporting.
