RAR support...

Another Windows-only game disc, another big-ass loki_setup patch to use 
it with the Unix port.

The soon-to-be-released Postal 2 expansion, Apocalypse Weekend, comes on 
a disc that is mostly uncompressed files, but one directory is in a 
Windows .exe...a self-extracting RAR archive.

I've added a plugin to handle RAR data to CVS. It uses the unrar source 
code for the heavy lifting, compiled with the rest of loki_setup and 
statically linked to the final binary...the unrar source is also 
included in CVS, since most (if not all) distros don't include the 
library form of unrar. Please read unrar/README.loki_setup in CVS for 
more rambling about it.

The plugin is disabled by default, but can be built by using 
--enable-rar on the configure command line. Seems to be basically robust
