				^^^^^^^ I'm not going to read that.

Well, -p on those was a mistake, so they have been removed, additionally it's been
the first commit right after 0.90.5, so most GIT-users won't even ever had -p
variants. Also it's only rep-gtk/sawfish linking against (pager is linking against
sawfish), so I haven't thought that this would be necessary.

Either way SONAME bump is prefered over aliases, they're only polluting the code in
my opinion.
