[I just saw this question now] Indeed that situation was not specified by the original rules. I would say: (a) if a player forms a friendly link and also an enemy link, he wins; (b) if he forms just an enemy link, he loses.

Just one slight ambiguity: What happens if the player creates a chain of
the opponent's pieces? Also, what happens if a player moves a piece to
create 2 chains, one for each player? An example of the latter is:
+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+
| n |   |   |   |   |   |   | R |
+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+
|   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |
+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+
|   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |
+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+
|   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |
+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+
|   |   |   |   |   |   |   | B |
+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+
|   |   |   |   |   |   | r |   |
+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+
|   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |
+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+
|   |   | q |   | N |   |   |   |
+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+
In this position, if White (lowercase letters) plays Rg3-a3, two links
are
formed: White has a link in Qc1->Ra3->Ba8, while Black has: Rh8->Bh4->Ne1
