Regarding , 'pnmtoplainpnm.exe' does not exist, only 'pnmtoplainpnm' is

 is a packaging error. pnmtoplainpnm is a bash script, and the link is
in this form in the binary tarball.
Is this different behaviour ('ls -l /bin' / 'ls -l /usr/bin') to be
Well, yes. Since the links are relative, doing "ls -l /bin" will attempt
to find the files in /share, which doesn't exist.
These are also packaging errors because, again, the links exist in the
relative form in the binary tarballs (I've only checked the cvs tarball,
but I assume webcheck has the same issue).
This may be a cygport bug as well.
Also 'ls -l /lib' / 'ls -l /usr/lib' shows something similar with:
X11 -> ../X11R6/lib/X11
terminfo -> ../share/terminfo
