xpbiff fancy biff program under X11 environment, supporting Japanese MIME extensions

This port supports Japanese strings in the From and Subject fields. Please set the LANG enviroment variable to ja_JP.EUC or ja_JP.SJIS by doing
	setenv LANG ja_JP.EUC
	or
	setenv LANG ja_JP.SJIS
There is experimental support for Sun audio.  This port also supports XPM bitmap files.

known problem 1 HANKAKU-KANA with ja_JP.EUC Xpbiff dumps core, because code conversion routines jis2euc assumes “the conversion does not makes the string longer”. But when converting so-called ‘hankaku-kana’, this assumption breaks.

This problem is only with ja_JP.EUC.
If you use with ja_JP.SJIS, this problem is not occure.

Thank you.
