IMO all the links I have gotten in the past 6 months have received zero credit from Google, even though they are legitimate links and from many well known sites.
I have the same feeling, though I don't have definitive proof. Changes that I am expecting due to new inbound links and also due to changes in internal link architecture are not forthcoming. New pages with high-quality internal links are not ranking nearly as well as expected compared to older pages with the same link juice. It's as though everything is being freshly indexed, but (Google internal) PR has not updated.
It almost feels like it used to right before the Google Dance.
