coreutils will do nothing special. Either cygwin1.dll will add support

After all, you don't want some, but not all, of your binaries to
understand these new links via special casing, so the best place to fix it
is in cygwin1.dll. Oh, and the usual disclaimer about PTC and SHTDI.
Don't work too hard, make some time for fun as well!
