great job İlim & Micah!

just wanted to chime in & say that I'm able to compile this now!
it may not be ready for prime time testing yet, but I think it's where
interested parties can take a peek now!

İlim was kind enough to implement listing "metalink" when you do 'wget
--version' if support is compiled in. this helps people like me tell
if they've stumbled along far enough :)

once this gets farther along the github issue tracker might be useful:
I only mention it because I didn't know it existed until gsoc & seems
pretty handy...

ps - libmetalink 0.1 is out, and so is curl 7.27 w/ metalink support,
in case any inspiration can be gained from there.
