Details

Description: create symbolic links on the executable (bin) so that it is easier to change version of php when you need to change version of PHP (CLI)

example:
imagine that you also have PHP version 7.2 (AUR)
you have :
/usr/bin/php
/usr/bin/php72
/usr/bin/php-config
/usr/bin/php-config72
/usr/bin/php-fpm
/usr/bin/php-fpm72
/usr/bin/phpize
/usr/bin/phpize72

is it possible to modify for:
/usr/bin/php74
/usr/bin/php72
/usr/bin/php-config74
/usr/bin/php-config72
/usr/bin/php-fpm74
/usr/bin/php-fpm72
/usr/bin/phpize74
/usr/bin/phpize72

and add symbolic links like:
/usr/bin/php >> /usr/bin/php74
/usr/bin/php-config >> /usr/bin/php-config74
/usr/bin/php-fpm >> /usr/bin/php-fpm74
/usr/bin/phpize74 >> /usr/bin/phpize74

So we can easily switch from one version to another, easily and without deleting the executable file, just by repoiting the 4 symbolic links ...
