Description of problem:
I'm not sure if this is a real bug, but as far as i know a symlink 
should always have 777 permissions.

well, i guess there is nothing else to say.. heres the output.. i've 
checked other versions, and only RHEL has this.. RHEL ES here. not 
sure about AS, WS or Desktop.

-rw-r--r--    1 root     root       409305 Feb  5  2003 linux.words
lrwxr-xr-x    1 root     root           11 Mar 12 03:07 words -> 

If it is normal, can someone explain how to do this ? (i've already 
googled a lot and found nothing about it)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.ls -l /usr/share/dict/words

Actual Results:  lrwxr-xr-x    1 root     root           11 Mar 12 
03:07 words -> linux.words

Expected Results:  maybe lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           11 
Mar 12 03:07 words -> linux.words ?????
