> Switch to Eric's build.xml and enhance as necessary.

As promised previously, attached is a reworked build.xml.  I tried to capture
the intent of the original in most respects; the items that might need some
tweaking include:

1) The Javadoc stuff.  This was kind of funky, and I wasn't entirely clear on
   how to make it work as intended (the original version doesn't seem to work
   properly with newer Ant versions).  This one just builds a vanilla
   documentation set.

2) Carriage return/line feeds.  This converts text files to DOS-style for the
   .zip, and Unix-style for the .tgz.  I think this was the intent in the
   original as well, but it might need to be looked at to make sure it works

Another suggestion might be to use the existing "jcifs.netbios.wins" but parse
for a comma- or space-separated list of servers, i.e.:

    Config.setProperty("jcifs.netbios.wins", ",");

One cleanup that could be done would be to pull out the writeInt2, writeInt4,
etc. from ServerMessageBlock and put them in a public class (possibly in
jcifs.util); that stuff is pretty much duplicated in the NTLM messages
