     If I counted right there are over 20 of these malformed links. 
Something else occurred to me. There are many more of the form:

  yplan -> ../../texmf-dist/scripts/yplan/yplan

This looks like I have to retain the source directory forever. Do you 
agree? I think it would be worth the pain of moving all the scripts to 
the bin directory instead of leaving the links.
