That should be easy.

It's been a while that I worked on that, but if I'm not mistaken it is
linked_programs = ofm2opl opl2ofm ovf2ovp ovp2ovf
for f in ""$(linked_programs); do \
cd $(bindir) && (rm -f $$f; $(LN) omfonts $$f); done
These are not created if the hunk that patches web2c/Makefile.in is
missing. All other invocations of "make install-links" anywhere in
web2c just do nothing.
