Mount Fixes

Three packages has been rebuilt on the latest batch of update and two of them are dealing with mount problems. The first issue is related with how ntfs-3g are handled. In the past, ntfs-3g are not mountable for non root users even /etc/fstab allows it by using users option. The only solution to this is place them on sudoers file or by making it setuid root. Pat choose the second option.

The second package, which is util-linux fixed the umount by changing the parameter used from --enable-new-mount into --enable-libmount-mount.

sysvinit-scripts are rebuilt to clear the consoles after logout except for the first console
