This a module template for Emacs users.

The 1st is created by Makefile.PL (basically its a rename of the 2nd) 
and is run during 'make install'. From the POD:

"This script will create a symlink in the 'installscript' directory (as 
defined during install) to a script in that same directory.  It was 
written to create a symlink with the name 'bp_pg_bulk_load_gff.pl' that 
targeted 'bp_bulk_load_gff.pl' but can be extended by adding files to 
the %symlink_scripts hash.

Perl function 'symlink' is used to keep the script from crashing on 
systems that don't allow symbolic linking."

I have no idea :)

This is also run automatically on 'make install'.
