as Alex suggested I'm writing some bug reports at the moment covering the parts of the documentation that need to be updated. :-)

It is outdated documentation. I maintain Debian (and Ubuntu) Web Polygraph package. The package does not do any renames or other weird stuff. You would get the same executable names if you compile by hand and do make install.
In Web Polygraph v4.0.8 many executables were renamed and "polygraph-"
prefix is now added during install. In particular, polyclt and polysrv are polygraph-client and polygraph-server now. Unfortunately, documentation is not yet fully updated.
As for polypxy tool, it has not been available for a long time. Again, documentation is not up-to-date here.
