attached is the new apropos created by Abhinav Upadhyay during last year's Summer of Code. I've added a small whatis(1) implementation to round it up. This should be a functional replacement for apropos(1) and whatis(1). It obsoletes makewhatis(8).

I would like this to be added to the base system.

Some of the names seem to be too generic. For example, init_db, close_db, and run_query, should probably have "apropos_" prefixed to their names.
