NetBSD marvin 1.2D NetBSD 1.2D (MARVIN) #22: Thu Mar 20 15:43:11 CST 1997 bgrayson@marvin:/a/orac/home/orac/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/MARVIN i386

	I wanted to look at the man page for the function for
	returning the contents of a symlink (readlink), but
	couldn't remember "readlink", so I looked at the
	symlink man page's xrefs, and was surprised to not see
	it listed.  Eventually, I remembered readlink on my own.
	man symlink, see no xref to readlink.  man readlink, and
	see xref to symlink.
	I don't know what order the xrefs should be in, but
	I'd guess the appropriate patch for /usr/src/lib/libc/sys/symlink.2
	would be along the lines of:
