[tlbuild] building without linked-scripts

Hi Peter,

in Debian we have a separate package for the stuff build from
the source dir.

Currently I disable the linked_scripts (and context, which is anyway
separate) in texk/texlive/Makefile.am
-SUBDIRS = context linked_scripts

That works out nicely, after this the installed stuff is actually
fine, no dangling links to the scripts hierarchy etc.

Only *one* script is wrong: m-tx, which after build/install of the 
source is
	m-tx -> ../share/texlive/texmf-dist/scripts/m-tx/m-tx.lua
(path due to Debian configuration).

Is this on purpose? 

Best wishes

The crucial moment of false recognition in a long passageway
encounter. Though both people are perfectly well aware that the other
is approaching, they must eventually pretend sudden recognition. They
now look up with a glassy smile, as if having spotted each other for
the first time, (and are particularly delighted to have done so)
shouting out 'Haaaaaallllloooo!' as if to say 'Good grief!! You!!
Here!! Of all people! Will I never. Coo. Stab me vitals, etc.'
