For the ln in linux and FreeBSD, the link name (eg file2) is optional. 
 From the man page:
If LINK_NAME is omitted, a link with the same basename as  the  TARGET 
is created in the current directory.

Perhaps IRIX's ln is different? If this is the case then it's a bug wrt 
IRIX. If you can confirm this is the case then I'll fix it in the dev
