svn diff from /usr/ports/net-p2p/namecoin

This diff on ports/net-p2p/namecoin updates namecoin and two slave ports to version 0.19.1.

This update to the port also removes dependance on the ancient db48.

You should probably [already] be backing up your ~/.namecoin/wallet.dat for good measure if you have coins or names.

If you open an existing ~/.namecoin/wallet.dat it will just work and remain in the db4.8 format until you use the lock/unlock functionality at which point this new port version will update the old dat format to the BDB version used now...which is set in DEFAULT_VERSIONS (5[.3] by default as of today if unspecified). Dat files used by namecoin WILL THEN BE INCOMPATIBLE/INELIGIBLE to simply copy over to another system which uses the prebuilt binaries from the namecoin project.

Most linux distro packages for {bit,lite,name}coin actually already link to db5 the same way we now are.

There is a text-format export/import functionality in namecoin-cli as well as db's db_dump|db_load utilities which [for namecoin's purposes] are compatible in both directions between db48 and [at least] db5(.3).
