From time to time, I've had trouble removing a symbolic link.  I'd get this:
# rm nz.freebsd.org.old
rm: nz.freebsd.org.old/: is a directory

I was told to use the full path.  Which I did.  And it worked:

# rm /www/nz.freebsd.org.old

I'm also told that this should also work:

# rm ./nz.freebsd.org.old

Go figure.
