Open Image Library 1.4.7a Released - Lots of bugfixes

- Fixed a potentially fatal error in ilConvertImage if converting from a palette'd image.
- Fixed ReadProc to take 4 parameters instead of just was causing problems with iread, which takes two size parameters instead of just one.
- Started preliminary support for 1 and 4-bit .bmp's.
- Fixed 8-bit .bmp loading.
- Rewrote iFreeMem() and a little of ilDeleteImages() in istack.c to fix a rare but very harmful bug when an image isn't loaded completely.
- Added support for more palettes in ilConvertPal().
- Updated png.c to use the new cross-language file-reading. This is the only lib that I could get to use the cross-language stuff for operating on already-opened files.

- Moved all il*.h out of /OpenIL* and into /include/il.
- Changed ABee's e-mail address where relevant.
- Updated the openil.def file, which didn't include the jpeg functions.
- Updated the Delphi headers to use the correct default IL_NO_XXX #define's.
- #define'd _IL_BUILD_LIBRARY in the internal.h files of ilu and ilut. I'm so surprised this warning didn't pop up earlier, but oh well, it's a Microsoft product I'm compiling with. ;-)
- Updated the out of date djgpp.mak (not tested).

About the only real new thing with this is inclusion of Delphi headers and support for building Delphi-compatible (and most other languages...) dlls. If anyone wants to write Visual Basic headers, that's all it should require to use from VB.
