lmtpproxyd and pop3proxyd are the same as lmtpd and pop3d.

AFAIK they are from the time where the murder frontend used its own
binaries with only the proxy functionality. I guess they are kept
for upgrade/compatibility reasons so the cyrus.conf could be kept
as is.

Maybe we should use links for lmtpproxyd and pop3proxyd to make
it more obvious.
