It used to be the case that the built binary was installed under 2
different names: `emacs' and `emacs-${version}.buildnumber', which
were both hard links to the same file.  Deleting `emacs' would then
leave the other one around, and when invoked, it would want the DOC
file with the corresponding suffix.  Is this no longer the case?  That
is, does installing a new version completely erases the old one?
