Yes, I know already.
It will be fixed with the next update.

But since 5.14.3 much is worse than 5.14.2 and all 5.16 releases are also
not much better so far, I'll wait for the next good release upstream.

The wrong symlink can be ignored, and you can delete it by yourself.

There should be a symlink of
/usr/lib/perl5/5.14/i686-cygwin-threads-64int/CORE/cygperl5_14.dll to
/usr/bin/cygperl5_14.dll only.
