Fixed bugs, in rpm2html, in the FTP client code of libxml.

Seems my ADSL installation is completed, now I can be connected *and* have phone call simultaneously (they were out of stock on ADSL line filters). Setup DHCP + IP masq, checked FTP code in that environment, seems to work better now

Compiled ext3-0.0.2e kernel RPMS, just to notice at the end that sct had released 2f, generating kernel RPMS takes more than one hour on my dual PII at work :-\, it's still compiling ...

Will leave early tomorrow to go to LSM I expect to see wiggy there. I'm supposed to talk on packaging, we will see ... I hope I will be able to connect without pain.

There was probably one of the longuest thread ever started in the libxml list, all about ports to Windows. It's funny to heard that Linux has no unicity, and that MS provides a far less fractionned environment, when one see the pain generated by the multitude of incompatible C environment and compiler on that platform. From that point of view on Linux it's quite better. Did some cleanup with SunPro cc on solaris, interesting how each breed of compiler caches differnent classes of errors, so sometime diversity of environments is good too :-). BTW will Purify ever ship to linux ?
