Not the entire SQL string per say.

You can get most of the info from dba_db_links and if the links are not public, even the password from user_db_links.
sselect dbms_metadata.get_ddl('DB_LINK',db_link,owner) from dba_db_links

I guess there is a way after all.

I usually use this query for that:

select OWNER, DB_LINK, USERNAME, HOST, to_char(CREATED,'DD-MON-YY HH24:MI:SS') "Created"
from all_db_links;

Note that there are some other columns available in this view.  Also, you could use either the dba_db_links or user_db_links (which will not have the "owner" column) instead of the "all..." view depending on your logon priviliges.
