Framebuffer NetSurf

There are actually two versions of NetSurf available for Unix-like systems. In addition to the GTK front end, which is for normal desktop usage, there is a framebuffer front end for NetSurf which requires no windowing environment or GUI toolkits. It currently supports the Linux framebuffer and ABLE's framebuffer.

Please obtain the latest source, if you want to play with the framebuffer build.
