I've checked in a patch which should accomplish that.  Note that /proc
and /cygdrive always have a link count of 1 now, as for remote
directories.  In case of /proc, the real link count would only
coincidentally match the number of subdirectories, while in case of
/cygdrive the evaluation of the link count would result in accessing the
floppy drive for each stat.  Since the link count of 1 is known to work
even with older find versions, that seems the best compromise to me.
Other than that, the link count should be correct now for local
