The following script fails with HEAD on Windows XP

% cd c:/Temp
% file mkdir a
% file link b a
could not create new link "b" pointing to "a": invalid argument

This works in 8.5b3

% file delete a
% file mkdir a
% file link b a
a

configured with

./configure --prefix=/usr --enablet-hreads

$ gcc --version

    Confirmed with gcc build - NOT a problem with MSVC build.
