Do not install backward compatibility links anymore.
This is a companion patch to 4f9dcf7e5cf6c82455925102d315daf3b833e6d6 which stops mentioning the old command names. As promised, we do not install symlinks to let people use backward compatibility names anymore. cmd-rename.sh script is still shipped to help people who installed previous git by hand to clean up the leftover symlinks.
