Hmmm... it doesn't report broken links when I check it. But it does
report that you have a robots.txt file that excludes robots:

    What to do: The link was not checked due to robots exclusion
rules. Check the link manually.
    Response status code: (N/A)
    Response message: Forbidden by robots.txt

... it even tells you what to do about it....
