So if I understand correctly, these symlinks are not required, and are 
only there to satisfy the freedesktop standard. If we do *not* create 
these symlinks on cygwin, Xfce will still work. Is that correct?

Adding the logic to not create these on cygwin is easy. I just need to 
know which of the themes do this. I'll have a look at it later this week.
