I've been on a link building campaign since shortly after Panda originally hit back in March. I can tell you that it's been an extremely slow process, but we've managed to get some highly ranked and high PR pages linking back to us along with some lower value, lower ranking pages. Overall, the last PageRank update has shot our PR values up across the board.
We haven't been aiming for difficult anchor text, as most sites will link back with our brand name as the anchor to a variety of different pages. The horrible side effect is that in some weird occasions, some internal pages will ranking for our brand name and our home page doesn't always get the #1 spot.
