Build system rewrite

There is a major rewrite going on for the next release. 0.1.X was based on a "everything in CVS" model, and it started to get too big for one person to handle and also a bit messy so a rewrite was in order.
The new version uses CVS for the buildsystem and uses the same build process as the TA-Linux collection system. More information will be available on the TA-Linux homepage.
