It's a small enhancement release:
- Removed useless remerging of clock skin with root window background on single mouse click (affected on clock skins with alpha channel and if xonclock was started with --use-background option).
- Added two new skins chrome-128.png and chrome-260.png. They are taken from http://www.kde-look.org

The program tried to load TIFF files as PNG files. Fixed. Configuration file may be not found if the HOME env variable was ended by '/' symbol. Fixed. Added handling of a skin path started with '~'. Added ability to handle skins with alpha channel by using new '--use-background' option.

Removed dependency on Imlib2 library. Imlib2 was being memory glutton in working with internal clock skin. Now xonclock tries to handle clock images by own. configure script cleanup.

Imlib2 memory glutton

Please convert internal xonclock.xpm skin to PNG format and use it instead. I found that Imlib2 may occupy a HUGE of memory while handling with XPM files. I'm working on new xonclock version that will not use Imlib2. Sorry.
