I've just published an updated nautilus-follow-symlink, in case anyone is actually using it 😛
I've finally tested this version against both GNOME 2 and GNOME 3, and I'm also providing a variant to build against MATE's Caja (MATE is a fork of GNOME 2, and Caja its fork of Nautilus).
I've also written a version for Thunar, though that one I'm not publishing just yet.
This is pretty much a final version, I started looking for alternative desktops after GNOME 3 clashed with my brain, and as a consequence I've reduced my use of Nautilus considerably. I'll try to keep n-f-s buildable, but that's about it.
You can download the updated version as usually at http://p.outlyer.net/nautilus-follow-symlink.
There's both sources and binaries for Debian Stable (i386 & ambd64) and Fedora 17 (i686).
Additionally there a binary package of caja-follow-symlink for LMDE (i386).
