I think it's hard to understand why this is done here without context.

Raghav has started working on packaging Linphone and has made new
definitions for bctoolbox and ortp in a new (gnu packages linphone)

So these packages are going to be moved rather than be outright

Raghav, for backward compatibility, when me move or rename a package, we
bind the deprecated symbols using the define-deprecated macro (from
(guix deprecation)).

In this case, it'd look like, for example:

(define-deprecated btcoolbox linphone:bctoolbox)

For an actual example, you can "git show 8ab060b68b3".
