Provide symlinks to tools in /usr/libexec/evolution/2.6

It is impossible to acces handy command-line tools in
/usr/libexec/evolution/2.6 like evolution-export-addressbook
etc. A good idea would be to provide symlinks into /usr/bin
for these, I think that's how other distributions does it.

It's not impossible. Inconvenient, maybe.
If it's something you use frequently, why not just add it to your PATH?

Hm, any user wanting to access it using a custom $PATH will
have to maintain their $PATH whenever Evolution release bumps
to 2.7 and it breaks. Doing symlinks would avoid that and
and also make it more convenient without loosing anything I
Debian and Ubuntu filelist:
They chose to create symlinks for:
Arguably the two more useful programs.
I can make a patch for evolution.conf if you like.
