Update of net/spread to 3.17.1 and some clean-up of the pkg.


*) Fix memory corruption and crash with groups of large size.
*) Correct make install so it installs header files.
*) Fix syntax error in build.xml file for Java/Ant.
*) Cleanup prototypes to remove compiler warnings.
*) Fix parser to correctly recognize upper, lower, and mixed case command options.
*) During make install, remove old symlinks.
*) Change setgroups call to be more portable. (fixes MacOSX)
*) Change name of r and s to sprecv and spsend, and add as make targets. 
   They can be built by "make testprog" (not built by default).
*) Work on making long group names possible. 
*) Increase listen backlog for accepting client connections.
*) Fix Win32 project files to have correct path to source files. 
   (note CVS was always ok, but 3.17.0 release had incorrect path)
*) Fix bug where large groups overflow Mess_buf in groups.c.
*) Fix memory corruption bug when a message header is received in
   several separate packets in session.c. Thanks to Ryan Caudy for 
   many, many hours tracking this down.
*) Change order of build in Makefile so binaries are built before
*) Fix Java bug where connection objects cannot be disconnected and
   then reconnected, but must be created anew. They can now be reused.
*) Fix compile error on AIX for struct if_info.
*) Fix security issue with buffer checks in the C library. 
*) Fix obscure off-by-one buffer error with the parser.
