I believe that this is correct.

Did you do a fresh install, and then some updates? Or was this origianly a
slink system that you upgraded?

With these settings only root can cd to any of the root directories. I
think everyone is supposed to be able to enter and read directories.
The only directory off / that doesn't have read,execute permissions set
for everyone is /root, which _is_ 700.

I'm not sure how your slink system got that way. Is /etc 700 as well?
