  find . -lname F

I tried that, but it's not foolproof:

% ls -li
3815190 -rw-r--r-- 1 jminer iis  0 Sep 28 16:21 F
3815193 lrwxrwxrwx 1 jminer iis  1 Sep 28 16:22 S1 -> F
3815215 lrwxrwxrwx 1 jminer iis 11 Sep 28 16:23 S2 -> ../jminer/F
% ls -Lli
3815190 -rw-r--r-- 1 jminer iis 0 Sep 28 16:21 F
3815190 -rw-r--r-- 1 jminer iis 0 Sep 28 16:21 S1
3815190 -rw-r--r-- 1 jminer iis 0 Sep 28 16:21 S2
% find . -lname F -print
./S1

It doesn't match S2 because the "names" don't match. However, it is a short and sweet solution, depending on what the OP intended.
