Feature #7106

FileUtils.touch should allow touching the symlink itself rather than the file the link points to

Description

Most systems support POSIX lutimes sys call that allows a symlink to be touched. I'd like to see this feature implemented.
Unfortunately I'd like to see this feature on Solaris as soon as possible but I cannot see lutimes syscall supported there.
