Summary:                    Two minor format string problems in ln
Description: 
The error messages for the ln applet pass a user supplied string as the
first argument to the bb_error_msg function.  This function interprets the
string as a format string leading to a segfault.

The issue is relatively minor since the ln applet seems to be marked
_BB_SUID_NEVER.
