The symlink and script come from texlive-collection-basic.  In current 
TeX Live on 64-bit Cygwin, the link does indeed point to rungs.lua.  But 
I think the .tlu extension is used for texlua scripts, so what you're 
seeing might not be a typo.  I'd have to look back at last year's 
texlive-collection-basic to be sure, but you can do that more easily 
than I can, since you already have a system with last year's
