Patch for Setup.exe problem and for mklink2.cc

Found the problem causing the segment violation and probably causing
Jonas Eriksson's problem. It is a typical case of 'off by 1'.
In PickView::set_headers the loop filling the window header does one
iteration too much, resulting in a call to DoInsertItem with a NULL
string pointer and hence a crash following.
While debugging this I could not compile the new mklink2.cc ( the
c++ version of the original mklink2.c). It seems three & (address of operator)
have disappeared in the transition. Putting them back made the compiler
happy. Is this OK Robert ?

Changelog
2002-03-27  Ton van Overbeek (tvoverbe@cistron.nl)
* Pickview.cc (PickView::set_headers) Correct loop count for DoInsertItem.

* mklink2.cc (make_link_2) Reinsert three & operators which got lost in the
  c -> c++ transition.

Patch in attached file.
