md5deep installs 5x the same binary (and manual page), but... #305

...IMHO this should be just one binary and 4 symlinks to it.

An example how this could look like is this:

$ ls -la /usr/bin/bz*grep
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 6 Jan 12 2013 /usr/bin/bzegrep -> bzgrep
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 6 Jan 12 2013 /usr/bin/bzfgrep -> bzgrep
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1830 Jan 12 2013 /usr/bin/bzgrep

Similar to the manual pages:
$ ls -la /usr/share/man/man1/bz*grep.1.bz2
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 60 Jan 12 2013 /usr/share/man/man1/bzegrep.1.bz2
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 60 Jan 12 2013 /usr/share/man/man1/bzfgrep.1.bz2
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 709 Jan 12 2013 /usr/share/man/man1/bzgrep.1.bz2

/usr/share/man/man1/bzegrep.1.bz2 and /usr/share/man/man1/bzfgrep.1.bz2 contain only the link to the main/major manual page.
