Since I won't be using the built-in links feature of wordpress, I see no reason in keeping its related menu items on the admin ui causing nothing but clutter.

How do I do that?

@Chris_O "possible duplicate" hits the nail on its head. That's only true if the answer would be the exact same, which isn't in this case (you couldn't know that when commenting this). – kaiser Sep 27 '12 at 15:17

In your theme's functions.php:

function wpse52464_admin_ui_fixes() {
add_action('admin_menu', 'wpse52464_admin_ui_fixes');

This is changed in WP 3.5 - "links" will be moved to a core plugin (like "Akismet" and "Hello Dolly") and be deactivated by default.
