FS#204 - -V is not Verbose=off on Unix

In vfe/unix/unixoptions.cpp, -V is defined as a synonym for -​-version, overriding its general meaning of Verbose=off.

Indeed, platform code should not change core behavior.

Should we remove the -V (synonym for –version) from unix port ?
Have anyone checked the other ports ?

Looking at unix option, -h is an alias to -help... which would also conflict with -h255 to specify the height ?
Well, it seems not a problem.

Should -V be removed or renamed as –V ?
(that's the -version | –version)

I'd say "-h" for help is much more common than "-V"/"-v" for version. E.g. svn and tar use "-v" for verbose instead.

Changed with #5453 to –V
