#329 Patch for mingwPORT.question

portmaker (4)

1) I think the prompt "Download directory?" sounds more natural than "Download to path".

2) Make the archive-file default to $ARCHIVEFILE if defined. Otherwise default to $PACKAGE-$VERSION.$ARCHIVETYPE.

3) I think the prompt "Installation root?" makes more sense than "Installation directory?".

    Applied (1) & (2), thanks. I'm not convinced by (3), and have invited comment from other project members; present consensus seems to indicate a preference for leaving the "Installation directory" form.
