Is it possible to replace mac aliases with symlinks, using Terminal or someway else?

The question says it all I think.

A client has a huge collection of files in folders which are aliased in many directions and has to move this collection to a unix based server which does not support aliases.

I am looking for a find / replace command that would solve this in a snap.

I'm surprised there isn't a built-in utility, but I haven't looked very hard.
