New Code!

Postoffice has been pushed up to version 1.5.10 with a single bugfix (a spooler problem where it would write duplicate message-id’s into messages that were first given to postoffice w/o a message id), a small handful of tweaks to improve portability, and a couple of small code changes (using waitpid() instead of wait3() and changing the prototype for the local setproctitle() function to use const char*) to work around miscoded features in Minix 3.3.

Will it explode? Probably not; the two code changes are very minor, and in a world where waitpid(0,...) actually works (the real world, I hope!) shouldn’t impact any machines which the previous versions already work on. So you should download it and see!
