In version 0.9.95 relative symlinks are first converted to absolute ones and then compared. There should be a way to compare symlinks by their exact contents. Suppose, for example, '~/dir1/link' points to 'README' and '~/dir2/link' also points to 'README' (each is in a different directory). kdiff3 converts these links to '~/dir1/README' and '~/dir2/README', respectively, and then compares them. This results in relative symlinks comparing different when option 'follow symlinks' is turned off. This makes it inconvenient to check if two directory trees have the exact same contents.
