They don't require administrator privilege per se: just
SeCreateSymbolicLinkPrivilege, which can be granted to normal user
accounts via local security policy. The easiest way to grant
SeCreateSymbolicLinkPrivilege is to start gpedit.msc, go down to
"Windows Settings"->"Security Settings"->"Local Policies"->"User Rights
Assignment", then find "Create symbolic links" and add whatever users
and groups you want.
unfortunatelly, gpedit.msc isn't available under Windows Vista Home Edition.
however, cygwin provide editright for that purpose, don't remember the
windows counterpart ?
editrights -a SeCreateSymbolicLinkPrivilege -a user
