JET/Jumpstart without NFS

I've been working on JET 4.7 (current released JET version is 4.6.3).

The main change is that I've now provided support to allow the Solaris Media and the /opt/SUNWjet directories to be hosted by a server (or servers) other than the JET server. This effectively removes the requirement for the JET server to provide NFS services.

Along the way I was able to tidy up and consolidate a lot of code, particularly the client_allocation_\* methods. I've added a few functions, and used the variables more consistently throughout. For those of you doing DHCP/PXE based builds, I've removed the /dhcp hack that was used to overcome the 255 char limitiation of the DHCP macros.

Full details on the wiki site

I'm hoping to release it by the end of April.
