[openssl-users] Symlinks STILL broken in 1.0.2e

There are still many broken symbolic links in the new 1.0.2e tarball:

 >ls -l ./test/ecdsatest.c
lrwxrwxrwx 1 normg smalltalk 42 Dec  3 06:44 ./test/ecdsatest.c -> 
 >cat ./test/ecdsatest.c
cat: ./test/ecdsatest.c: No such file or directory

find . -type l -! -exec test -e {} \; -print

Will there be a 3rd 1.0.2e tarball released to fix this?
