New cabextract 1.9 and libmspack 0.9 release

Hello all,

cabextract 1.9 and libmspack 0.9alpha have been released. This corrects two issues introduced in the previous release.

1. Using "cabextract -F" gave invisibly wrong results. The bug is in libmspack, it avoids decompressing data to get to the correct folder offset when the folder is LZX compressed. 2. cabextract would not build with the ./configure --with-external-libmspack option (src/cabinfo.c relied on the "-I./mspack" compiler flag).

Other changes you should note:

* cabextract and libmspack are now distributed with their test-suites, which now run as part of "make check" * cabextract and libmspack's files have been cleared of obsolescent tests. C code now make these assumptions:
    - <ctype.h> <limits.h> <stdlib.h> <string.h> exist
    - cabextract assumes <dirent.h> <errno.h> <locale.h> <stdarg.h> <sys/stat.h> <sys/types.h> <time.h> exist     - if you have iconv(), towlower(), utime(), utimes(), you also have their header files (<iconv.h>, <wctype.h>, <utime.h> and <sys/time.h> respectively)
    - <ctype.h> defines tolower()
    - <string.h> defines memcpy(), memmove(), strrchr(), strlen()
    - <string.h> (or <strings.h> if you have it) defines strcasecmp()
    - <time.h> protects itself from double-inclusion
* cabextract's ./configure --with-external-libmspack now uses pkg-config. You can use the environment variables libmspack_CFLAGS and libmspack_LIBS to override this. * libmspack's programs in src/ have been moved to examples/ and do not auto-install
* cabextract's test suite needs the "diff" command
