Patch to create %%DATADIR%% before attempting download; general overhaul.

Hi Adam,

the geoipupdate.sh script is non-functional for me on a fresh ports-based install. Apparently we need to create "%%DATADIR%%" first, and the script can also do with enhanced error checking and refactoring.

Patch attached -- the crucial point is the "mkdir -p" early, and the trap/rm -f/mv -f are to make the script more robust and ask less questions in adverse conditions.

  Ensure that DATADIR exists before attempting to fetch the data files
  into it. Also, make the script more robust and ask fewer questions in
  adverse conditions.
