[GRASS5] links in installation

Could someone please help me figure out the meaning of high link counts 
in the /usr/local/grass5/bin directory?  I'm used to link counts being 
fairly low numbers, so I'm not sure why I'm getting link counts up 
around 400 in the grass bin dir after an install.  The file sizes are 
all equal as well, but much larger than what I would expect for a 
symbolic link.

Is there a policy on where bin files are placed?  Should they be kept in 
the etc/bin/cmd and parallel directories with an ln -s from grass5/bin?

Thanks in advance for help.
