OK, c file and man page attached. The copyright is updated and the 
version now reads 1.01. I assume you would rather mess with
the Makefile since you're already familiar with the cygutils source;
let me know if I need to provide patches for anything.

I speak a little roff, so since I don't have a sgml->texinfo translator
I just made a mkshortcut.1 file. Maybe there's something to convert man
to texinfo, so documentation can be created in either format and translated?
I've used man2html quite a bit and it works well.
