backed-up modified conffiles, (which led to bizarre, bogus

interactive conffiles prompting.
(ipkg_install_by_name): Fixed "ipkg install foo" to never
downgrade foo, (just like "ipkg upgrade foo").

will let update-alternatives work, (which already does examine

during -force-reinstall.
(unpack_pkg_control_files): Cleaned up conffile filenames to not
have ugly things like "///" inside them.
* ipkg_download.c (ipkg_download): Cleaned up error message.
(ipkg_download): Now uses new file_move function.
(ipkg_download_pkg): Created new function, (from old code in ipkg_install).
* ipkg_cmd.c (ipkg_download_cmd): Added new "ipkg download"
* file_util.c (file_move): Created file_move, (from code that had
been in ipkg_download).
(file_copy): Added error message on failure.
* conffile.c (conffile_has_been_modified): Eliminated crash if
conffile_has_been_modified is called with conffile->value == NULL.
2002-03-09 Carl Worth <>
* RELEASE_NOTES: Added release notes for 0.99.1
* Incremented version to 0.99.1
* pkg_hash.c (pkg_hash_pkg_owning_file): Fixed to actually return
NULL if no package owns a file.
* pkg.c (pkg_get_installed_files): Added installed_files_ref_cnt
to pkg_t to prevent pkg->installed_files from being freed from an
inner loop while still being used by an outer loop, (which was
* pkg_hash.c (pkg_hash_pkg_owning_file): Moved this function in
from pkg_dest.c. Also, updated it to use pkg_get_installed rather
than mucking around inside /usr/lib/ipkg and globbing for *.list
(pkg_hash_fetch_best_installation_candidate): Fixed to only return
a package that actually could be installed, (ie. it must have
either a local_filename or a non-NULL src from which it could be
downloaded). This prevents a segfault during "ipkg upgrade".
* pkg.c (pkg_get_installed_files): Fixed to not do strange things
to filenames such as: "//./bin/sh"
* ipkg_cmd.c (ipkg_files_cmd): Added pkg_free_installed_files to
conserve a bit of memory.
(ipkg_search_cmd): Updated to use pkg_get_installed rather than
mucking around inside /usr/lib/ipkg and globbing for *.list files.
* pkg.c (pkg_free_installed_files): Added this function to free up
memory from pkg_get_installed_files.
* ipkg_conf.c (ipkg_conf_set_option): Added force_reinstall option
to allow reinstallation of an installed package.
* args.c (args_parse): Added -force-reinstall option to enable
reinstallation of an installed package.
* busybox-0.60.2/ar.c (ar_main): Updated unarchive call to track
prototype change.
* busybox-0.60.2/libbb/unarchive.c (free_header_ar): Added
function to plug memory leak.
* ipkg_install.c (check_data_file_clashes): Fixed crash if no
package can be found owning the pre-existing file.
* pkg_dest.c (pkg_dest_deinit): Fixed bug that pkg_dest was
holding on to freed data rather than making a local copy.
* pkg_depends.c (freeDepends): Fixed crash when pkg->depends is NULL.
* RELEASE_NOTES: Added release notes for 0.98.0 and 0.99.0.
* busybox-0.60.2/libbb/unarchive.c (extract_archive): Fixed
bug. Always alloc memory for full_name so we don't free data that
we shouldn't.
(unarchive): Updated to accept a free_headers function pointer as
a counterpart to get_headers, to eliminate memory leaks.
(free_header_tar): Implemented cleanup function as counterpart to
get_header_tar, to eliminate memory leaks.
(deb_extract): Added several calls to free_header_tar to eliminate
memory leaks.
* str_util.c (str_dup_safe): Added convenience function. Like
strdup, but safe to use on a NULL pointer.
* pkg_vec.c (pkg_vec_insert): Updated to use new pkg.c:pkg_merge
rather than marry_two_packages. With this change the free(pkg) is
now here rather than one level deeper. Eventually, I want to get
this free(pkg) up and out of pkg_hash_insert.
* pkg_parse.c (parseDependsString): Fixed bug walking off the end
of the raw buffer looking for a character that isspace().
(parseConffiles): Fixed big bug parsing Conffiles field where all
conffiles appear on the same line.
* pkg_hash.c (pkg_hash_add_from_file): Plugged memory leak of data
allocated deep down in read_raw_pkgs_from_file.
* pkg_depends.c (pkg_hash_fetch_unsatisfied_dependencies): Plugged
memory leak, (missing pkg_vec_deinit).
(freeDepends): Added this function as the counterpart to
buildDepends. Getting closer to chasing down all memory leaks.
(depend_deinit): Added this function as the counterpart to
depend_init. Getting closer to chasing down all memory leaks.
(parseDepends): plugged memory leak of pkg_name.
* pkg.c (pkg_deinit): Added pkg_deinit to take care of freeing any
memory owned by a pkg_t.
(pkg_init_from_file): This function was 100% broken, (missing
(pkg_merge): Moved pkg_merge here from
pkg_vec.c:marry_two_packages. Started work to make it
non-destructive, (not finished).
(pkg_print_info): Added Status and Essential fields to
(pkg_print_status): Fixed pkg_print_status to work whether or not
the package is installed.
* ipkg_utils.c (read_raw_pkgs_from_file): Moved fclose out of
read_raw_pkgs_from_stream and into this function where it belongs,
(since the fopen occurs here).
(trim_alloc): Fixed trim to not free data passed in. Changed the
name to make it obvious that it is allocating memory.
* ipkg_install.c (ipkg_install_from_file): Fixed to be more robust
to the fact that hash_insert_pkg sometimes frees the data that I
pass into it (!).
(satisfy_dependencies_for): Cosmetic change to messages.
(satisfy_dependencies_for): Now sets the dest on to-be-installed
packages, so that the state_want flag can be written to a status
file if necessary.
(satisfy_dependencies_for): Added pkg_vec_deinit to plug memory
(ipkg_install_pkg): Added "run ipkg update?" hint to error
(backup_modified_conffiles): Made more robust to the case that a
conffile has disappeared.
(install_maintainer_scripts): Fixed bug that was installing
maintainer scripts as libFoopostinst rather than
libFoo.postinst. This was preventing postinst scripts from being
(cleanup_temporary_files): Added missing closedir to plug a memory
* ipkg_download.c (ipkg_download): Cosmetic change to error
* ipkg_conf.c (ipkg_conf_parse_file): Plugged some small memory
(ipkg_conf_set_option): Changed configuration options from
force-depends, force-defaults to force_depdends, force_defaults to
be compatible with old ipkg.conf files.
(ipkg_conf_set_option): Fixed bug in parsing options.
(ipkg_conf_write_status_files): Fixed to list all interesting
packages, (any with non-default state), in status file rather than
just installed files.
(ipkg_conf_write_status_files): Plugged a memory leak.
* ipkg_cmd.c (ipkg_status_cmd): Changed "ipkg status" to use
pkg_print_info so it is much more verbose, (includes fields such
as Maintainer, etc. that are merged in from the lists files).
* ipkg.h (IPKG_DEBUG_NO_TMP_CLEANUP): Added compile-time option to
preserve temporary files for easier debugging.
* file_util.c (file_md5sum_alloc): cosmetic changes to variable
* ipkg_conf.c (ipkg_conf_init): Added support for offline_root
configuration file option.
* args.c (args_init): Added support for -o, -offline,
-offline-root command-line arguments. (Although they don't really
have any effect yet).
* ipkg_install.c (ipkg_install_pkg): Changed back to marking
package as installed before postinst, (the pkg_run_script wanted
to find the scripts in /usr/lib/ipkg/info). Actually, it could
probably find the script in either place at this point so maybe it
doesn't really matter.
2002-03-07 Carl Worth <>
* ipkg_install.c (ipkg_install_pkg): Changed to only mark package
as installed after running ipkg_configure, (to run the postinst
* RELEASED ipkg-unstable 0.99.0
* Updated all instances of "XXX" in the code to indicate one of
the following categories:
XXX: BUG: This is a bug that needs to be fixed.
XXX: QUESTION: Implementation approach is uncertain here.
XXX: CLEANUP: Suggestion on how the code could be cleaned up.
XXX: FEATURE: Comment describes a useful feature request.
* pkg.c (pkg_print_status): Added the Depends field to package
paragraphs in the status file, ("ipkg remove" will need this).
* ipkg_install.c (satisfy_dependencies_for): Fixed "ipkg install"
to not complain several times about "Package foo already
installed" when doing large recursive installs.
(ipkg_install_pkg): "ipkg install foo" for an installed package
will now check and install any missing dependencies before exiting
with "Package foo is alrady installed."
2002-03-06 Carl Worth <>
* pkg_dest.c (pkg_dest_pkg_owning_file_alloc): Moved this function
here from ipkg_install.c. Also plugged a memory leak in it with
* pkg.c (pkg_remove_installed_files_list): Fixed bug that
prevented package.list file from ever being removed during "ipkg
* ipkg_remove.c (remove_data_files_and_list): Fixed noisy and
spurious warnings about non-empty directories. "ipkg remove"
should now only say anything if a directory that was solely
provided by that package is non-empty.
* ipkg_cmd.c (ipkg_install_pending_cmd): Plugged memory leak with
* ipkg_install.c: *Many* fixes to enable "ipkg upgrade" to more or
less work. Primarily fixing file clash identification and conffile
handling/resolution. "ipkg upgrade" has now worked correctly on
several test cases!
* ipkg_install.c (unpack_pkg_control_files): Now initializes
conffiles list from the contents of conffiles control file,
(leaves md5sum calculation until the actual conffiles are
extracted later).
(ipkg_install_pkg): Separated backup_modified_conffiles and
check_data_file_clashes into separate functions.
(preinst_configure): Simplified this function pushing its old
logic into pkg.c:pkg_run_script.
(backup_modified_conffiles): Added backup of any conffiles that
are new as of this upgrade.
(check_data_file_clashes): First real implementation of
(resolve_conffiles): First real implementation of
(backup_make_backup): Added this and a few other functions to
abstract backup creation/removal.
(find_pkg_owning_file): Added this function.
* pkg_extract.c (pkg_extract_data_files_to_dir): Fixed args to
deb_extract so that existing files will be overwritten, (and any
other error messages will no longer be suppressed).
* pkg.c (pkg_print_status): Added Conffiles field to
(pkg_print_field): Fixed crash when printing NULL Conffiles
(pkg_get_conffile): Fixed crash if pkg_get_conffile called with a
NULL pkg.
(pkg_run_script): Made pkg_run_script smart enough to run scripts
for uninstalled packages, (from
<pkg_tmp_unpack_dir>/<script_name>), as well as for isntalled
packages, (from <dest_info_dir>/<pkg_name>.<script_name>
* str_util.c (str_tolower): Added convenience function.
(str_toupper): Added convenience function.
* nv_pair.c (nv_pair_init): Fixed crash from calling nv_pair_init
with NULL value.
* pkg.c (pkg_init_from_file): Fixed bug -- forgot to close file.
* file_util.c (file_md5sum_alloc): Convenience wrapper around
md5_stream as ripped out of busybox. This function takes care of
file open/close and does the bin2hex conversion of the md5sum.
* conffile.c (conffile_has_been_modified): Implemented this
function for real now that we have md5sum capability.
* md5.c (md5_stream): Sucked in md5sum calculation code from
busybox, (it wasn't part of libbb, so I just copied the files
straight in and ripped out uninteresting functions such as
md5sum_main, etc.)
2002-03-05 Carl Worth <>
* pkg.c (pkg_print_field): Added support for printing Conffiles
* ipkg_install.c (remove_obsolesced_files): With the fixed
pkg_get_installed_files_list from below, this function now seems
to work!
(ipkg_install_pkg): Fixed to mark old package as uninstalled after
* pkg.c (pkg_get_installed_files_list): Fixed so that it's
possible to get an "installed_files" list even from an uninstalled
package, (it pulls the list of data files straight out of the
* ipkg_cmd.c (ipkg_upgrade_cmd): Fixed ipkg_upgrade to not choke
if asked to upgrade an un-installed package.
(ipkg_upgrade_pkg): Fixed printing of version numbers.
* file_util.c (file_mkdir_hier): Abstracted call to libbb
make_directory into new file_mkdir_hier. At this point, the only
calls into libbb are isolated in file_util and pkg_extract. This
will make it easier if we ever decide to directly incorporate that
code or rewrite it.
* pkg_extract.c (pkg_extract_data_files_to_dir): Abstracted all
calls to deb_extract in several new pkg_extract functions.
2002-03-04 Carl Worth <>
* ipkg_conf.c (ipkg_conf_init): Added support to ipkg_conf to
pickup command-line arguments for "force-defaults" and
"force-depends". Things set on the command-line should take
precedence over things found in the configuration file.
* ipkg_cmd.c (ipkg_search_cmd): Fixed formatting of "ipkg search"
* pkg_depends.c (pkg_hash_fetch_unsatisfied_dependencies):
Re-added fix to set *unresolved to NULL if depends is NULL.
* xregex.c (xregexec): Removed useless error messages from NOMATCH
calls to regexec.
* ipkg_install.c (satisfy_dependencies_for): Added support for new
"unresolved" argument in
pkg_hash_fetch_unsatisfied_dependencies. Cleaned up warning/error
* ipkg_cmd.c (ipkg_search_cmd): Implemented first-cut of "ipkg search".
* pkg_depends.c (pkg_hash_fetch_unsatisfied_dependencies): Fixed
to set *unresolved to NULL if depends is NULL.
2002-03-01 Carl Worth <>
* RELEASED ipkg-unstable 0.98.0
* ipkg_configure.c (ipkg_configure): Added flushing of stdout,
(here and in a few other modules).
* file_util.c (file_copy): Implemented this function here as one
step toward isolating the calls into libbb functions. Updated old
copy_file calls to file_copy in both ipkg_download.c and
* ipkg_install.c, ipkg_remove.c: Demoted several "XXX" comments to
DPKG_INCOMPATIBILITY as I really don't intend on addressing them
any time soon, (if ever).
* ipkg_cmd.c (ipkg_files_cmd): Fixed "ipkg files" from crashing on
uninstalled packages.
* familiar/rules: Added support for easy building of an
ipkg.ipk. The version number and the architecture are
automatically sucked in correctly from autoconf magic, (even when
cross-compiling). Maybe autoconf will start paying off with
benefits rather than pain, (finally!).
* Removed MEMCMP and STAT checks which were breaking
* ipkg_cmd.c (ipkg_upgrade_pkg): BIG bugfix: Package version
comparison was sign-reversed, (hence it would never upgrade).
2002-02-28 Carl Worth <>
* ipkg_download.c (ipkg_download): Changed from
system("/bin/cp",...) to copy_file(...)
* replace/strndup.c: Implemented an (untested) replacement for
* Added AC_CANONICAL_HOST to automatically set the
correct architecture type in the ipkg control file.
* Changed version number to 0.98.0 in preparation
for alpha release.
* familiar/rules: Added support for easy building of an ipkg.ipk.
2002-02-27 Carl Worth <>
* ipkg_install.c (ipkg_install_pkg): Fixed to abort on failed
* pkg.c (pkg_run_script): Fixed bug that was preventing any
package maintainer scripts from running, (hence, they run now so
running non-native offline no longer works until I figure out the
chroot plans).
* TODO: Added rough outline of remaining features with a release
* pkg_parse.c (pkg_parse_raw): Added parsing of "MD5Sum" in
addition to "MD5sum" to accomodate bug in old ipkg.
* void_list.c (void_list_remove): Added new remove function, (also
adjusts a forward iterator). Required new list->pre_head member
which was added to all sub-list types.
* pkg.c (pkg_init): Changed pkg->conffiles to be of the new
conffile_list_t datatype.
(pkg_remove_installed_files_list): Pulled this function into
pkg.c, (from ipkg_remove.c), so the mallocs and frees would be in
the same C file.
(pkg_get_conffile): Added this convenience function.
* ipkg_remove.c: Fixed several bugs. ipkg_remove now actually
works for simple packages!
* ipkg_install.c (ipkg_install_pkg): Don't re-install if a package
is already installed.
(ipkg_install_pkg): Fixed major bug that all of ipkg_install's
work was always being unwound even when successful.
* ipkg_cmd.c (ipkg_files_cmd): Fixed to use
pkg_get_installed_files_list rather than a private implementation
that sifted through the file lists on disk.
* str_util.c (str_ends_with): Added this convenient function.
(str_chomp): Another convenience.
* ipkg_conf.c: Moved chomp to str_util.c (str_chomp), since
someone else wanted it too.
2002-02-26 Carl Worth <>
* pkg_parse.c (pkg_parse_raw): Added XXX requesting parsing of
Conffiles: field along with a hint about how to store the data.
* conffile_list.c: Added a little wrapper around nv_pair_list
* conffile.c: Added a little wrapper around nv_pair
* str_util.c (str_ends_with): New convenience function.
* str_list.c (str_list_remove): Plugged in remove function.
* void_list.c (void_list_remove): Added remove function, (handles
updating of forward iterator).
* pkg.c (pkg_run_script): Changed to return return value of
* ipkg_remove.c: Fleshed out initial version of all ipkg_remove.c
* ipkg_configure.c (ipkg_configure): Added check on return value
of pkg_run script. Added comments about dpkg compliance.
* ipkg_cmd.c (ipkg_purge_cmd): Added ipkg_purge_cmd
2002-02-20 Carl Worth <>
* Added USC copyright statements, (and Compaq stubs as necessary)
* ipkg_install.c: At this point "ipkg install" on a simple
package, (no scripts and no dependencies), works just fine. It
might even do some of the script and dependency handling correctly
too, but I haven't tested that yet. "ipkg install libc6" is a nice
little test that should complete without any errors or
warnings. Follow that up with "ipkg status" to see that it worked.
* pkg.c (pkg_run_script): Added convenience method for running
package scripts.
* ipkg_install.c: Fixed several bugs:
(unpack_pkg_control_files): control files now extract to the
correct temporary directory.
(ipkg_install_pkg): pkg->state_want is now properly set to SW_INSTALL
(ipkg_install_pkg): status file now gets written after installation
(cleanup_temporary_files): All temporary files are cleaned up.
* ipkg_configure.c (ipkg_configure): Fleshed out a very simple
ipkg_configure, (simply runs "postinst configure"). Maybe it will
need to be smarter at some point. Moved unwritten conffiles stuff
back to ipkg_install.c.
* ipkg_conf.c (ipkg_conf_write_status_files): Moved this function
from ipkg_utils to ipkg_conf since it needs access to the
* pkg_vec.c (marry_two_packages): Added several missing fields,
(state_want, state_flag, filename, local_filename, tmp_unpack_dir,
md5sum, size, installed_size, priority, source, conffiles,
isntalled_files, essential)
2002-02-19 Carl Worth <>
* ipkg_install.c: several little bug fixes. "ipkg install" will
now actually install files from a package! There are still some
bugs, (eg. postinst scripts are not called -- probably other
things as well). But, it's coming together now.
* pkg_dest.c (pkg_dest_init): now creates all necessary directories
* ipkg_download.c (ipkg_download): Fixed misleading parameter name.
* ipkg_conf.c (ipkg_conf_deinit): Now cleans up tmd_dir on deinit
ipkg.c: now calls ipkg_conf_deinit before exiting.
(ipkg_conf_add_nv): Fixed to set default_dest when parsing first
dest in ipkg.conf
* ipkg_cmd.c (ipkg_list_cmd): Fixed ugly bug in ipkg_list that led
to infinite loops, segfaults, string corruption, and other bizarre
* Added many files as we are approaching the first functional ipkg
implementation in C:
file_util.c: convenience for testing if file_exists, reading files, etc.
ipkg_configure.c: mostly just a stub so far
ipkg_download.c: convenient function to download a file
nv_pair.c: data structure to hold a name-value pair
nv_pair_list.c: data structure to hold a list of nv_pair_t
pkg_dest.c: data structure for everything a pkg destination wants
pkg_dest_list.c: data structure to hold a list of pkg_dest_t
pkg_extract.c: convenience functions for package extraction,
(these function should encapsulate any libbb borrowings we perform
-- although some slipped into other files already)
pkg_src.c: everything you might need for a pkg src.
pkg_src_list.c: data structure to hold a list of pkg_src_t
str_list.c: data structure to hold a list of char *
void_list.c: generic linked-list data structure and functions
xsystem.c: wrapper around system() with error checking
* ipkg_remove.c: Just added some stubs. Nothing really works at
all yet.
* ipkg_install.c: Large rework of ipkg_install. It's now close to
actually being usable, (but it's not quite there yet). Revamped to
match dpkg install order more closely, (with all the stubs in case
we ever want to call all the scripts that dpkg does). Also updated
to use a more recent deb_extract from libbb.
* ipkg_extract_test.c (main): Added support for a third arg, (the
filename to extract to the buffer).
* ipkg_conf.c (ipkg_conf_init): Added several fields to
ipkg_conf_t: pkg_src_list, pkg_dest_list ,
restrict_to_default_dest, default_dest, tmp_dir, lists_dir,
pending_dir, force_depends, and pkg_hash. There's still a bit of
tension between options stored in the config file, (ipkg_conf_t),
and command-line arguments, (args_t).
* ipkg_cmd.c: First version that is approaching usability. The
following commands are more-or-less in place: "ipkg update", "ipkg
list", "ipkg info", "ipkg status". While the rest are in various
states of being partiallyy written or written but untested.
(ipkg_upgrade_cmd): Added support for restricting to a dest. Many
other changes, largely involving plugging into the pkg_hash for
real for the first time, and adding multiple dest support.
* ipkg.c: Added support for setting the dest on the command-line.
* args.c: Added support for IPKG_CONF_DIR environment variable and
-f, -conf, and -conf-file options.
* Added lots of little bits suggested by autoscan.
2002-02-18 Carl Worth <>
* pkg_parse.c (pkg_parse_raw): Added parsing, (kinda ugly), for
essential field.
* pkg.c (pkg_print_field): Added the essential flag.
* pkg_vec.c (pkg_vec_insert): Fixed to use pkg_compare_versions to
determine matching versions instead of a strcmp on the version
2002-02-15 Carl Worth <>
* pkg_parse.c (pkg_parse_raw): Updated to accept a pkg_src_t
* pkg.c (pkg_init): Added field to pkg_t: "pkg_src_t *src"
* pkg_hash.c (pkg_hash_add_from_file): Updated to accept a pkg_src_t
* pkg_parse.c (parseStatus): Modified to accept a pkg_t *
(parseVersion): Added this function
(pkg_parse_raw): Updated to accept a pkg_dest_t
(pkg_parse_raw): Reworked the parsing to use a pkg_t rather than a
slew of local variables.
(pkg_parse_raw): Added support for about a dozen new pkg_t fields
* pkg.h: Updated for all pkg.c changes.
* pkg.c (pkg_new): Added pkg_new for convenient alloc'ing of a pkg_t.
(pkg_init): Added several fields to pkg_t: dest, section,
suggests, filename, local_filename, tmp_unpack_dir, md5sum, size,
installed_size, priority, source, and conffiles.
(): Moved buildPkg this function to pkg_parse
(pkg_init_from_file): Added convenience function for filling a
pkg_t from an actual package file.
(pkg_print_info): Split print_pkg into both pkg_print_info and
(pkg_print_field): Added pkg_print_field, (extremely ugly)
(): Moved parseversion to pkg_parse where it belongs
(pkg_version_str_alloc): Added, (complement of parse_version)
* pkg_depends.h: Added GPL blurb
(PKG_DEPENDS_H): Added multiple include protection
* pkg_depends.c: Moved non-static prototypes to header file.
Changed several locl-only functions to be static.
Added function prototypes for static functions.
(buildDepends): Removed unecessary cast of malloc return value.
* pkg_hash.h: Moved hash-related struct declarations to this file
Rename pkg_fetch* to have consistent pkg_hash_fetch prefix.
Added missing prototype for pkg_vec_fetch_by_name
* pkg_hash.c: (pkg_hash_add_from_file): Added support for setting
the pkg_dest
(pkg_hash_add_from_file): Moved buildDepends call to
(pkg_hash_fetch_installed_by_name_dest): Added this function to
support pkg_dest
* ipkg_utils.h: Added GPL blurb
(IPKG_UTILS_H): Added multiple include protection
* ipkg_utils.c:
(read_raw_pkgs_from_file): broke read_raw_pkgs into
read_raw_pkgs_from_file and read_raw-pkgs_from_stream
(ipkg_write_status_file): Fixed return value
(print_pkg_status): Moved this function to pkg.c:pkg_print_status
(line_is_blank): Fixed const char handling
2002-02-08 Carl Worth <>
* pkg_parse.c: Fixed a bug in parsing the 3 state fields.
2002-02-06 Carl Worth <>
* pkg.c: Expanded pkg_status field to the full 3 fields: state_want,
state_flag, and state_status.
2001-12-11 Carl Worth <>
* ipkg_conf.c: Now parses /etc/ipkg.conf, (and doesn't do anything
with it).
* ipkg.c: Started work on ipkg main, (not much here yet).
* ipkg_cmd.h: Added a tiny thing to abstract top-level ipkg
commands, (not finished).
* Set up autoconf and friends
