sorry that I come late with my review.

Reading the patch, two questions came to my mind:

1) It was said here that MSYS supports file hard links on NT filesystems.
So it is possible that under some circumstances, LN=ln will be selected
there.  Is this intentional?

2) Are you sure that `ln -s foo dir' will succeed on DJGPP < 2.04?
If not, the your patch introduced a regression for that platform.

If my concern about 2) is valid, the following patch should fix it.

Have a nice day,
