The packager has been updated to no provide path capabilities on the command line by using a "-patch" flag. I have also now included a new variable for all new packages so that the package creation date can be preserved. Which this new variable will be useful and in use for FREESCO v0.3.9 when it is released. So for all packagers please update and use the new packager for all new packages and you can also add the new variable into any existing package install script as well in the following format.

PDATE="may 4 2007"

Which all that is required is to adjust the date to the approximate date the package was made. Do *NOT* use a / slashed date format. This will provide older packages a more accurate release date in the new package system in FREESCO v0.3.9 when it is released.

The new packager also has a bug fix or two from the previous packager script.
