Well, in reviewing my original post I see I failed to mention that what I was 
actually inquiring into was whether or not the update of packages via setup on 
a Win2k system could be causing these broken links.  Cygwin-apps is the place 
we discuss setup correct???

Since the only thing I have done of late with my copy of cygwin is keep the 
packages updated and update my sources and occasionally recompile, I have a 
feeling that there might be something in setup turning of the read only flag 
and not turning it back on which seems to be breaking the link.

Just a thought.  If with my clarification I am still in the wrong mailing list, 
my apologies and if no one else has run into this then it must be something on 
my system and again my apologies.
