Memory leak - areadlink() returns a malloc()d string that the user must
free.Also, areadlink() is expensive (in addition to malloc(), it makes
several syscalls);

oh, just looked at the source code of areadlink, indeed, thanks.

a more efficient solution would be to check if errno
is ELOOP or ENOENT (the only possibilities for a dangling symlink; any
other error should return -1), and in those two cases a successful
lstat() is sufficient to detect a broken symlink without resorting to
reading its contents.

I guess you mean stat, lstat will not work here, as it doesn't follow
the *symbolic* link. what we need to do is to determine if the symbolic
link is dangling, so use "stat" to update the patch, v3 send, thanks
