XVoice 0.9.6 released

Many minor things added/fixed, plus a number of larger changes:
- the xvoice.xml file (though still supported and read) has been split into "module" files, which makes it much more extensible and personally customizable.
- much improved grammar file syntax with some powerful new attribute tags to the <vocab> and <application> tags. See the COMMAND file for details.
- improved support for RH8+ systems when Carlo Wood's vvinstall script was used to install viavoice.
