 is a packaging error. pnmtoplainpnm is a bash script, and the link is
in this form in the binary tarball.

Well, yes. Since the links are relative, doing "ls -l /bin" will attempt
to find the files in /share, which doesn't exist.
These are also packaging errors because, again, the links exist in the
relative form in the binary tarballs (I've only checked the cvs tarball,
but I assume webcheck has the same issue).
This may be a cygport bug as well.
