Create symlinks to vim 6 and vim 7

When installing the Vim (version 7) optional package, the version 6 binary is still available (as /bin/vim), although version 7 (/boot/common/bin/vim) takes precedence in binary search path.

This gives an opportunity to create symlinks /bin/vim6 -> /bin/vim (in any Haiku build) and /boot/common/bin/vim7 -> /boot/common/bin/vim (shipped with the vim 7 optional package).

Otherwise, people won't know that they have both versions.

AFAIK it was decided to remove the vim sources from the Haiku source tree and replace it with nano as command-line editor. So in the future only one version of vim will be shipped with the system. From other side, the current state of Haiku is "the development platform", and developer usually know what he has on his system.

In my opinion we cannot spent any effort on implementing such temporary solution. But this is a point of discussion, of course. ;-)

Yea, if vim6 is supposed to go then there's no need for version-symlinks.
