Description

This patch allow installer frontend (dfuife_curses) to connect to the backend from a remote machine.

Patch also includes a small change to two installer makefiles, so that it can be build correctly from the /usr/src/nrelease directory (not sure if this change is formatted in a way that is acceptable).

pfi.conf example:
-----------------
ifconfig_vtnet0="DHCP"
pfi_rc_actions="netif routing routed"
pfi_frontend="none"
pfi_backend="/usr/sbin/dfuibe_installer"
pfi_dfui_transport="tcp"
pfi_autologin="installer"
pfi_shutdown_command="shutdown -h now"
-----------------
Note:
This requires a change to the rc.d/pfi script so that the backend will listen on 0.0.0.0:9999 when frontend="none", seperate patch will be submitted for this.
