I do believe that link building is about quality, not quantity.
Just this week I landed a UK government link for a fairly new website. It represents the second darn good link the site has received. Within 48 hours it rose up in the serps in a dramatic way for all primary terms its been optimized for.
I'd rather have 3 great links than hundreds of marginally good ones.
