I thin kyou should just call `(dired-get-filename nil t)' on each line
to get the file names, and then call `file-truename' to get the name of
the target.  Inspecting the text in the buffer with regexps is bound to
be fragile.

But I'm still not sure this is a function that would be generally
useful.  :-)
