[fpc-devel] new rtl- packages

To whom it may concern, fyi

The RTL was getting quite big, and is compiled 4-5 times per make all, so
with a major branch splitting off in the next half year and the end of the
2.6.x branch, it was considered time to move some of them to packages.

As some of you might have noticed, the first such rearrangements have been
made, three new packages have been created, containing the units listed

rtl-extra  : objects matrix ucomplex
rtl-objpas : convutil(s) dateutil(s) stdconvs variants varutils 
rtl-console: crt video keyboard mouse

Another package (rtl-unicode?) with encoding table units will follow in the
coming weeks, and more units will be moved to rtl-extra.

This work is done in pieces because with 30+ rtl/xxx/Makefile.fpc to edit,
it is a bit sensitive. If you get an error compiling the RTL or a package
due to a missing unit on trunk, don't hesitate to report it here. 

Thank you.
