Thanks. Looks good. But this comment in make_file():
/* either symlink pointing nowhere or file that
got me to thinking. If copy_links is selected and if the referent
is not found, then in that special case the file is truly missing,
not just vanished. Short of merging the readlink_stat() code into
make_file(), I see no easy way to distinguish that condition.
