In preparation for a SWORD 1.6.1 release, I've just committed what I
hope are all the outstanding patches which have been submitted.

I've updated the autoconf configuration to actually work when different
features are turned off or missing.

FTPLib support should be brought up to the same level as cURL support,
including progress messages.

Both transports honor the term flag now during download (thanks Eeli).

installmgr utility gained ability to process multiple flags (changed
terminology to 'commands' since previously each flag executed a
different function).  Download progress was also added, along with a new
-d debug flag.

clucene support now should have a large enough buffer to support large
entries in our modules (thanks mwtalbert)

All warnings which cause -Werror to break (for the systems I've tried)
are removed and some reported by others which I do not see are also
fixed.  There are still some warning patches I have not applied, as I do
not see any problems on my end with a new F12 g++ 4.4.2 toolchain
(thanks jmarsden)

Just wanted to send out a big THANK YOU to everyone (many more than
named above) for all the work finding bugs and anomalies using 1.6.0 in
each of your different projects and sending in patches and suggestions.
So appreciated.

Please let me know if we have any outstanding issues still on the table
for a 1.6.1 release.
