Add lowercase executable symlinks to proprietary .deb packages => Fixed in SVN

Description

The Open Source edition has (at least on Ubuntu) symbolic links/aliases to the capitalized executable filenames from lowercase names (e.g. virtualbox -> VirtualBox, vboxmanage -> VBoxManage). For compatibility and convenience, these should be added to the proprietary edition published in the APT repositories ( http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian).
