Previously, the tools/makemanifest script was written in bash. This had the problem, that the sort command was behaving different on certain Linux installations, leading to inconsistent results.

This PR rewrites the tool in pure perl, thus ensuring consistency between different systems. Furthermore, it adds three new switches to it, --quiet, --save and --diff. These can be used to suppress output, automatically overwrite the old MANIFEST file, and show a diff instead of the full new MANIFEST respectively.
