SILC Plugin 1.0.1 released

The new release of the SILC Plugin fixes several minor bugs and inconveniences discovered since the last release.

Besides this, the whole build process has been replaced by a new one. There is no automake/autoconf ruleset anymore which will guide you through the process of compiling the plugin but a detailed description of what you have to do.

This has two reasons, first of all, this versions adds a perl module Irssi::Silc which required large changes to the build process anyway. The other reason is that the old method didn't work on NetBSD or Solaris systems. This limitation is now overcome. I may eventually automate the build process again, but actually, I'm quite happy with the way it's done now.
