If the above directory is served by an http server compiled under Cygwin
(e.g., apache), the symlinks will be resolved to real files.  If, however,
the files are opened by a Windows browser, the symlinks will not resolve
to images.

What are the images symlinks to?  Wouldn't it be better to just change the
HTML file so that they refer to the images in the correct relative

FWIW, for Cygwin, it may be better to package the images as *hard* links,
which will work on NT-based systems, and will cause setup to (correctly)
produce copies on 9x systems.
