There isn't yet, though I have a ticket filed requesting one:
https://svn.boost.org/trac/boost/ticket/1976 Please add your use case
to that ticket.
The v3 lib under discussion has a read_symlink function which will
allow a non-naÃ¯ve implementation. In the mean time, if you're in
windows you can try the implementation in the ticket.
