htop and gdb upgraded

Two packages in Slackware-Current are now upgraded. They are htop, a ncurses-based process viewer which is more like an enhanced version of top, and gdb, GNU Project Debugger, a standard debugger used by many Linux distribution to debug problems related with memory dump when applications crashed.

Even though it might not be user visible update, but these two packages are still considered important because one of them is used to monitor processes (especially for administrators) and the other one is to debug applications that are faulty (for developers).
