[CFT] Conditional execution phase 1

I have just committed phase 1 of the conditional execution changes to 
CVS HEAD. At this point, it is only DTD 3.2 syntax, and the only test 
verb implemented is <test>. However, <if>, <then>, <else>, <and>, <or> 
and <not> are all in place and have passed basic testing here.

The CVS snapshot for tonight has already been made, so if you're not 
able to make your own tomorrow's snapshot will contain these changes. 
One warning though: if your profile contains <patch>, <download>, 
<unpack> or <remove> elements (as most do), changing to DTD 3.2 will 
cause you some work to update to the new syntax for those elements. The 
CVS DTD has not yet been updated to reflect all of these changes, so if 
you haven't been following the discussions it might be best to wait 
before you try testing these new features :-)
