Bugfixes.
* README: Update. * configure.ac: Change bug-reporting address. * doc/pies.texi: Minor fixes. * src/pies.c: New configuration statements: mailer-program and mailer-command-line. (mailer_program, mailer_command_line) (mailer_argc, mailer_argv): New globals. * src/pies.h (mailer_program, mailer_command_line) (mailer_argc, mailer_argv): New globals. * src/progman.c (destroy_prog): Bugfix: update master program when destroying a retranslator. (send_msg): Several bugfixes. Use mailer_argc, mailer_argv instead of hardcoding sendmail command line. Remove invalid recipient addresses from the resulting command line.
