Hi all.

I've fixed the behaviour of quoting.


It would be nice to be able to do (eg)

google swans "god damn the sun" lyrics

but surfraw eats the quotes before passing them to google.  You can
use -q to quote the whole string, or backslash the quotes, but thats a


For each arg, if it contains a character from IFS (ie it was
originally quoted), add double quotes round it.

It seems to work ok but could do with more testing.

I also made a bunch of small changes:

  * Makefile.am: Added missing files to EXTRA_DIST
  * Added a debconf note (only visible if upgrading from 2.0-1)
    explaining the elvi have moved again.
  * configure.in: changed to new AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE format,
    specified minimum automake version 1.7
  * updated surfraw.lsm with new URLs
