zombie packages.



There seems to be a number of 'not quite dead' packages in CVS, that
lack a dead.package, but have had an empty sources file for some time now.
(There's also a few from the last few weeks in the list below).

I stumbled across this on one of my 'make prep the whole distro' crusades.
This process now takes over a day to unpack the source for everything.
A clear sign of how much we've grown. (When I started doing this, it was
feasible to do it in an afternoon).   However there are a number of packages
that fail 'make prep' in assorted ways, which means it can't be left
unattended to do its thing.  The simplest (and most common) failure type
is this one, which makes rpmq hang until it gets a ctrl-D

I adapted my script to deal with zero byte 'sources' files, but for completeness,
if any of the packages below are actually dead, we should drop a dead.package
file in their devel dirs.

Package names and last commit message below..
