It looks like you are building in a branch.  The version of mklink2.cc I
have from the main branch is

static const char *cvsid =
  "\n%%% $Id: mklink2.cc,v 2.1 2002/03/26 00:25:15 rbcollins Exp $\n";

The most recent patch you applied to mklink2.cc (announcement attached) is
identical to my proposed patch, but it was applied in

 static const char *cvsid =
  "\n%%% $Id: mklink2.cc,v 2002/04/12 06:21:27 rbcollins Exp $\n";

The changelog for that is
2002-04-12  Robert Collins  <rbtcollins@hotmail.com>

* mklink2.cc (make_link_2): Tweak to work with current w32api headers.

Well if you recall I had the opposite code in place (as far as I can
tell without an actual patch), and that didn't compile for a different
set of users. I completely rebuild my OS the other day, and after that
I've needed the patch. That seemed a strong indication that the w32api
was the culprit..
