Different program; it's in either the `unzip' or the `unzip-crypt'
package; take your pick.  (See apt-cache search for more info.)

`ln -s foo/bar/baz quux', where quux is a directory (like `.'), is
equivalent to saying `ln -s foo/bar/baz quux/baz'.  Same as with most of
the fileutils, actually.  This is documented on the ln man page,
although it's pretty terse.
