Fuzzy doesn't really do much with --link-dest at the moment.  It can
cause an alternate basis file to be found to help improve the transfer,
but it only looks in the destination directory (which should be empty
when using --link-dest in its normal form), and it doesn't cause any
differently named files to be linked together.
