updated spec file; changes:

- split freeciv-tools in freeciv-manual and freeciv-modpack
- name space cleanup (dependency were named after non-existend packages)
- longer description (use freeciv header)

the following rpm lint errors are still present.

While most of the errors are rpm spezific, the one about the calls to exit() should be fixed in the freeciv source (if possible).

(file #14007)

I did some experiments with a new opensuse spec file for freeciv. The attached version creates several packages. Please test and send comments. Should there be other subpackages? What needs to be changed for ubuntu, redhat et al?

Split man freeciv into:
- freeciv-data-client
- freeciv-data-server
- freeciv-data-sounds
- freeciv-doc
- freeciv-aimodules
- freeciv-aimodules-devel
- freeciv-client-gtk2
- freeciv-client-gtk3
- freeciv-client-qt
- freeciv-client-sdl
- freeciv-client-xaw
- freeciv-locale
- freeciv-server
- freeciv-tools
- libfreeciv-srv0
- libfreeciv-srv0-devel
- libfreeciv0
- libfreeciv0-devel

It is a build with shared libraries. Furthermore, I did use update-alternatives to add a freeciv-client command which links to gtk2 (30), sdl (20) or xaw (10). In brakets the priority is given.
