Terse Follow Up

After re-introducing terse mode yesterday, there were some follow ups on today's update. Slackware's pkgtool has been rebuilt again to accept non-standard slack-desc file so that it won't truncate some contents.

PHP has been rebuilt to include new configure script to make it work again with MySQL. Actually this problem has been spotted by some of Indonesian Slackware Community for the last few days, but since i don't see any problem report on LQ, i thought it was only a local problem. I compiled my own PHP installation with my own configure parameters, so i didn't experience this problem on any of my machines.

There were some other bug fixes, such as mkinitrd, cairo, openssl, wpa_supplicant, scim, and mozilla-firefox packages. The rest of the packages are just a normal upgrade process.
