New acediff - checks return codes

In the past people have reported problems with
acediff silently failing when disks fill up or
other problems occur. I've updated the source so
that it fails noisily and returns a non-zero exit
code in such circumstances.

The source and some useful binaries are in
/pub/acedb/acediff.checked on and
will be in the next source release of acedb.

The observant amongst you will notice that the
source is now under the GNU GPL, so to fore-stall
further questions, yes, the next (4_8) release of
acedb will be GPL'd.
