Support new MaxMind GeoIP database format (v2 / .mmdb) #212
The GeoIP support in flowtop and other tools relies on an outdated format, and as of January 2019, downloads in that format are no longer available from MaxMind. The new format is documented here: http://maxmind.github.io/MaxMind-DB/
MaxMind now supplies an auto-update tool that puts the files in a standard location (/usr/share/GeoIP) so other packages can use the same databases. This may also be an opportunity to simplify things by removing GeoIP download code.
