Version 17 of ngIRCd

Release Notes: User modes "c" (show connect/disconnect NOTICEs, required for e.g. BOPM) and "x" (hostname cloaking) have been implemented. Support for user authentication using PAM has been added. New configuration options "NoPAM", "NoZeroConf", and "SyslogFacility" were supplemented. The debug mode has been enhanced; the daemon can dump its internal state now. The power of IRC operators has been raised: now they can use MODE on any channel and always change channel modes.
