Getting Rid of HAL Related Files

Two packages has been changed in the latest batch of update to remove the HAL-related files which no longer shipped with Slackware-Current. The first package is ntfs-3g which is upgraded to 2013.1.13 and sane which is rebuilt to fix the build script to apply add|change rules correctly.

Sadly, VMWare Workstation still uses HAL in order to work, so i keep hal and hal-info packages in my machines so that i can still continue to work with them.
