Start preparing MakeNL release

Started preparation of a new MakeNL release, v3.2.9, which is being taken from v3.2.7e. It is not being released as v3.2.8 because someone hatched out an entirely unofficial v3.2.8 archive so the consensus was to skip that version and go to v3.2.9 for the next official release.
I had created a debian package of v3.2.7e, with the source for that coming from the origianal cvs repository (before that repository went down and we had to move the project to Sourceforge). Still need to verify that the source in that package and the source we now have in the cvs repository as v3.2.7e (and becoming v3.2.9) is the same. (Not counting things like differences in the debian/ directory.)

Note that the following warnings showed up during test builds of the Debian package (on Debian v5, i386):
makenl.c: In function 'main':
makenl.c:296: warning: the address of 'NewFile' will always evaluate as 'true'
msgtool.c: In function 'OpenMSGFile':
msgtool.c:160: warning: the address of 'MessageDir' will always evaluate as 'true'
Andrew Clarke posted in MakeNL echo about also doing some test builds (on Debian 4.0, Ubuntu 9.10 and FreeBSD 7.2); he also ended up seeing the above warnings as well as the following one:
mklog.c: In function 'mklog':
mklog.c:82: warning: format not a string literal and no format arguments
