mailcap aside, I've made some package changes.

see here (pacman 3 only)
Server = http://archlinux.org/~aaron/repo/

* added /etc/protocols and /etc/services
* added empty /srv dir
* removed package specific skel files (bash and xinitrc, etc)
* updated to patchlevel 15
* added the patch level to the version number
* added skel files for bashrc and bash_profile
* upgraded to 20070202
* added in the 'traceroute' package
* SUID ping, ping6, traceroute, traceroute6

Still pending, related to these changes:
* move skel xinitrc and xsession to xorg-xinitrc
* move /etc/profile from bash to filesystem
* remove PS1 from /etc/profile

Lemme know if I covered it all.
