The Courier Authentication Library is a generic authentication API used
for two purposes:

1. Read the name of a mail account. Determine the local account's home
   directory, and system userid and groupid.
2. Read an account name, and a password. If valid, determine the
   account's home directory, system userid, and groupid.

The base package only installs the authpam authentication module to
obtain account information and passwords using PAM

Other plugin authentication modules are provided:

	net/courier-authlib-ldap		OpenLDAP
	databases/courier-authlib-mysql		MySQL
	databases/courier-authlib-pgsql		PostgreSQL
	databases/courier-authlib-userdb	libc db based
	databases/courier-authlib-usergdbm	gdbm dependant
	mail/courier-authlib-vchkpw		vpopmail/vchkpw

Install them as occasion demands.

Make courier-autlib ports run the sysconftool on installation, as
suggested by upstream, like courier-imap port does.

The sample files are renamed to ".dist" because that is the name
the tool expects.

Also added a note to UPDATING to warn users about the sysconftool
expecting the comments not to be removed.

While here convert to localbase.

By default libtool replaces -export-symbols <file> with -retain-symbols-file
<file> on ELF systems, but this doesn't really do what -export-symbols is
meant to do.  On GNU ELF systems it converts <file> to a simple version
script first and then uses -version-script instead of -retain-symbols-file.
Let USES=libtool patch libtool scripts to do this on all systems with GNU

Bump PORTREVISION on all ports where the build log contains -export-symbols.

audio/calf: This port builds a module that now exports only one function,
but it also builds a number of executables that link to this module and
expect to see other functions.  Because it's already a bit dodgy to link to
a module (libtool warns about this) let the module continue to export only
one function and instead build an ordinary library from the same source that
the executables can link to.  Fix a number of other issues in the same
