Curiosity got me.  I pulled the source and looked.

One is a program and the others are symlinks to it.  They are aliases
to the same program providing different names.

        ln -s fromdos $(tempdir)/$(package)/usr/bin/todos
        ln -s fromdos $(tempdir)/$(package)/usr/bin/dos2unix
        ln -s fromdos $(tempdir)/$(package)/usr/bin/unix2dos
