Language support

For the main program I moved the function whichp rovides
message strings for message IDs to a loadable module.
I also provided the possinbility to override the standard
menubar/statusline creation functions from that module.
The module now contains the GERMAN text. The
FRENCH module, contains english texts mixed
with some rubbish, because I do not speak french.
Somebody else might fix this.

JAVA on VGA without X

I try to run the JAVA hmi viewer on a vga screen without using an X-server. This may be usefull for small and/or embedded systems.
I put a VERY experimental version into CVS.
Any comments and/or help welcome!
Next step should be to bring it on the framebuffer.

string handling

There are two possibilities to include header files from /usr/include/g++:
Either <string> or <String.h>, which provide similar functionality with slightly differing names, if I got it right. But using <String.h> reduces code size by about 20%.
