You make it too simple.  From the "Real programmers don't eat quiche" manual:

"If it was hard to write, it should be hard to understand and harder to

Or (depending on your version of find):

find . -type l -ls

(When I taught an Intro to Unix course, I recommended that my students re-read 
the find man page every few months.  Every time I re-read it, I find something 
I didn't know before.)
