Moved to new yaf-splash

I have modified some scripts in Woof that used the old yaf-splash so that they now use the new yaf-splash:

/usr/local/petget/,,,,, petget
/usr/sbin/filemnt, puppyinstaller, pupscan, save2flash, snapmergepuppy

The new yaf-splash uses gtkdialog-splash, which uses gtkdialog3.

The old yaf-splash is located at /usr/X11R7/bin/yaf-splash so you can hard-code the path if you want to keep using it in scripts -- I have no plans to remove it in Wary and Quirky builds.

Here is an Xft patch for XOSD, which has most of the same features as yaf-splash, plus some new ones. You might find it useful for something.
