./chat/sirc, IRC client written and programmable in perl

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.211nb10, Package name: sirc-2.211nb10, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

This is a simple (well, not so simple anymore *grin*) irc client,
written in perl and C.

It's divided in two parts, a dumb-mode (meaning, no full screen
interface) client, dsirc, that can be used stand-alone, programmed in
perl, and a separate split-screen front end in C, called ssfe.

The main point of running this client is that you can get a reasonable
ircII-like interface on an account with a properly installed perl
interpreter, with the perl client taking about 55k (and it's usable on
its own if you don't have access to a C compiler) and with the
interface, once compiled, taking just another 30 or 40k. The two
together, while lacking the huge complexity of ircII, make a very usable
client. And if you know perl, you'll find you can do quite complicated
and interesting things with sirc too :)

See /usr/pkg/lib/sirc/README for more usage instructions, and see
/usr/pkg/lib/sirc/PROGRAMMING for information on how to extend sirc.
Some example scripts can be found in /usr/pkg/lib/sirc/scripts.

Log message:
Avoid failing in sed if $HOME isn't set. I thought pkgsrc provided
work/.home for that, but maybe it's not getting through for some
reason? Seen on MacOS.
