 Description of GeoIP patch:
 By default, Webalizer uses DNS suffix to guess country and produce geographic
 stats. Some WWW hostings (mostly free ones) has reverse DNS feature disabled,
 so there's no DNS, and consequently no geographic stats. Well, Webalizer *has*
 internal Reverse DNS feature (aka "Webazolver"). But it's too slow, even
 running 100 threads. So, is there any other way? Sure! It's GeoIP library!
 GeoIP is a C library that enables the user to find the country that any
 IP address or hostname originates from.  It uses a file based database
 that is accurate as of March 2002.  This database simply contains IP blocks
 as keys, and countries as values.  This database should be more complete and
 accurate than using reverse DNS lookups.
