uShare 0.9.9 released.

Added support for FreeBSD.
Use a RedBlack balanced tree searching and sorting algorithm
instead of the recursive one. It avoids recursive calls, takes
less memory (perfect for embedded systems) and executes in more
"constant time" than the logarithmic style.
Original patch by Phil Chandler.
Massive memory optimization (uShare now takes 75% less RAM ;-)
only not using fixed size URL allocation buffer (a 16000+ files
collection now only takes 5MB where it used to take 19MB).
Improved search parsing and matching mechanism (patch by Mostafa
Hosseini). XboX360 support is now complete.
Please note that to stream video to the XboX, the console should
be running dashboard version 2.0.4552.0 and only unprotected
.wmv files are supported.
Fixed support for 2GB+ files (see http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1634927&group_id=151880&atid=782410\)
Fixed support for XboX 360 (thanks to Mostafa Hosseini).
Added basic support for 'Search' action.
Fixed bug with localization, use now --localedir configure's
option to set location of .mo files.
Make libupnp >= 1.4.2 a requirement.
