Is there anyway to just tar up symbolic links ?
find foo -type l -print | cpio -o -H tar -O foo.tar
I don't think there is a way to do it with the tar command, but you
don't need one since the cpio command can write in the same format.

Perhaps it's a simple question that I don't have answer.
I have tried on different Un*x and it seems that neither
native TAR nor GNU TAR restores symbolic link with
the same date and time as original ones. I am
surprised that "-p" option is useless here.
Is there any hidden option available ?
Many thanks in advance.
