Support for AIX native (.bff) packages: patch available

Since I don't have AIX I can't test this.  But this is a quick script
to automate building your inventory file.  If I knew what type of
checksum it wanted I would throw the code in (see attachment).

However, you should beable to extract out the $PREFIX by doing like:
PREFIX=`grep "^prefix=" Makefile | cut -d = -f 2`

And the script should be pretty much be automated.  Allowing the package
builder to build to their --prefix targed location.

We are getting close to 3.1 release.. so I think this will have to
go in at the start of 3.2.  Unless Damien and Markus think that
this is an non-issue and I'll important the current version now.
