Pkgtool Updates

Pkgtool has been used in Slackware since early version and so far, not much bug fixes since it's very stable and even if there's a bug, most people won't notice it. Today, there's an update to the pkgtool package and it's about the regex pattern being used in installpkg. It could cause packages that do not conform to the FHS (those containing single-character top-level directories) to not be removable or upgradeable through the pkgtools. Along with this regex fix, the update also Made the top-line with -infobox more terse since some of the package names have become too long to fit, and were disturbing the infobox's formatting.
