[ANN] pkg_online-client-0.10 release

Some time ago I released new version of wip/pkg_online-client, client part
of the client/server search system for pkgsrc packages.

The default search capabilities becomes even more powerful.
Quick example is below.

    net/dhisd                 -   DynDNS server
    net/fpdns                 -   Fingerprinting DNS servers

    net/mydns-pgsql           -   PostgreSQL-based DNS server

Detailed manual is in README file.

Major changes:

  Now pkg_online_client and pkg_online_find conform to POSIX Utility
      Syntax Guideline, for example, you can run the following

      pkg_online_find -r3 runawk.

  pkg_online_client/pkg_online_find and server-side tools now use
  .conf files (pkg_online_client.conf and pkg_online_server.conf)
  placed under sysconfdir directory or user's home.

  Build system has changed to mk-configure and the project structure
  has been reorganized.

  New option -n was added to pkg_online_client.

  FIX: dictd's special entries (00-database-xxx) are ignored by

  AI logic has moved from pkg_online_client to pkg_online_find.

  DESCRPTION:xxx entries were removed from PKG_ONLINE_FALLBACK_RULES.

  Several "dict" clients are run in parallel. This gives ~25% speed-up.

Best regards, Aleksey Cheusov.
