I'm proposing a v2.10 for netkit-core. It can now be build for 32 and 64 
bits architectures, which permit to avoid to install 32 bits libs on 64 
bits linux install. It also contains previous from v2.9 i've proposed no 
so long ago. The modifications between v2.8 and v2.10 are available in 
the CHANGE file:

   - support for 32 and 64 bits architecture for UML tools
   - add binary check during check_configuration.d (to detect problem when
     the user install the wrong version of netkit in respect of his host
   - renaming vconfig to vconf (zioproto)
   - support for connection mconsole (babazka)
   - support for vdump (via uml_dump): small utility to connect wireshark
     or tcpdump directly to a uml_switch
   - add Ktabstart, a tool to run netkit session within konsole tabs (sv75)
   - for developpers:
     * better looking excludes in Makefile (Markus Stenberg)
     * sources of the uml tools are in src/ directory and patches are
       applied during build
     * removing previous uml tools binaries
     * removing obsolete goals in Makefile

The v2.10 is available here:


Massimo: because it is compatible with previous version of netkit-core, 
it would be a good idea to merge it to the main repository, what do you 
think ?
