Ken added those commands about 4 years ago with the comment:

Remove the redundant resizecons program (32-bit x86
only, needs the defunct svgalib, which predates linux-2.6 and is 
incompatible with modern KMS, to provide the video mode files - for normal 
use setfont sizes the console appropriately) and its manpage


The wording has been changed slightly since.

I haven't checked, but I suspect resizecons is still redundant.
