bigtwo: coffee.vrock.2 released

here's vrock.2, second revision to the vrock release of bigtwo-lib it
is meant to stabilize the current codebase before moving on to
the implementation of the planned new features, fixing some
minor bugs and flaws in the AI.

multiple level debugging mode is added to the game engine to
control how much debugging information to reveal when running
in debugging mode, and that is, i guess, the most important new
feature of this revision release.

bigtwo: coffee.vrock.1 released

as usual, the .1 release fixes bugs that i should have noticed before making the
previous release, but well, it just happens. so here are the bug fixes, and more
debugging information (on the AI side), and that's more or less vrock.1.

o [**] added Makefile for Windows (tested with djgpp).
o [en] added command line option in ai-test and sp-test.
o [en] set/show game random seed in DEBUG mode.
o [ai] fixed bug regarding the "pass or play" decision.
