I don't know. Konq seems to always copy local symlinks as symlinks but for 
remote symlinks it copies the pointed-to file. Perhaps you could 
sftp://localhost and copy them that way? :-)

I had the opposite problem a month or two ago, and posted a message here. I 
wanted to copy remote symlinks as links. Nobody responded that I noticed 

It would be nice if you could select one behaviour or the other independent of 
the file being local or remote, maybe by holding down a modifier key when you 
drag. :-)
