Originally reported downstream:
 https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=230327

Running cleanlinks with "-h" for help, removes all dangling symlinks in the current directory.

This is not good, cleanlinks should exit with an error since -h is not a valid option.

It would also be good if the POSIX options --help and --version were implemented.

BTW, --help & --version are GNU options, and are actually violations of
the POSIX standard, not recommended by it.
