It's not clear what this means.  are these descriptions of symbolic
links?  If so, i don't know what you're trying to do here.  Is there a
reason to have /usr/local/bin/pinentry at all?  on ubuntu, i recommend
just installing the pinentry-* package that matches your preferred
desktop environment and allowing it to be automatically selected.
