Mention the --enable-symlinks option in INSTALL

From version 2.11 onwards, the default for Ganeti is to install as
a standby version to be activated by the old Ganeti version itself.
While this is useful for existing users, first-time installations
need to add these symlinks or configure with ``--enable-symlinks``.
Add this information to the INSTALL instructions.

This will install the software under ``/usr/local``. You then need to
copy ``doc/examples/ganeti.initd`` to ``/etc/init.d/ganeti`` and
integrate it into your boot sequence (``chkconfig``, ``update-rc.d``,
etc.). Also, Ganeti uses symbolic links in the sysconfdir to determine,
which of potentially many installed versions currently is used. If these
symbolic links should be added by the install as well, add the
option ``--enable-symlinks`` to the ``configure`` call.
