#156 Support a header file in epslatex terminal

Harald Harders

This patch adds the keyword 'header file <file>' to the
epslatex terminal. It adds \input{<file>} to the
written LaTeX file. This can be used instead of 'header
<string>' to add header information to the output file.

In addition, this patch now takes the code that avoids
to use conv_text in post.trm. Thus, patch #1121971 is
obsolete now.

This patch also provides the files cmbright.gpt,
times.gpt, and palatino.gpt that can be used with
'header file "times.gpt"', for example, to switch to
the corresponding font.

At the moment, the Makefile is not perfect since the
targets seem to be strange to make. And, these files
are not installed by default. Could please somebody
have a look at this? I don't know how to do it and I am
not able to fix this point. Nevertheless, I think that
this topic is independent of the patch itself and can
be fixed later.

    In preparation for a code freeze and the run-up to a release of
    version 4.2, existing bugs and patchsets are being prioritized.

    This patchset is not on my (sfeam) list for inclusion in 4.2 and
    is therefore being marked as priority 2.

    Note that this does not mean it is a bad patch, or that it won't
    be incorporated into cvs after 4.2 is released. We can
    re-evaluate priorities after 4.2 is out.

    If you want to argue for immediate reconsideration - go right
    ahead; but do so quickly!
