Hmm, what's the benefit of having symlink_status() and status() ?
Wouldn't one function suffice that sets the symlink flag when a symlink
is encoutered on the way. I.e.

symlink_flag | directory_flag

identifies a symlink pointing to a directory

symlink_flag | not_found_flag

identifies a symlink pointing to a non existing file/dir

and so on ...
