Multiple Block Chain DNS Seeder / Node Tracker

In order to support several Altcoins on a single machine / VPS, we have built upon joe@exor's excellent work with generic-seeder to create multiseeder. Thanks also to sipa, creator of the original bitcoin seeder.

multiseeder examines the DNS query packet to select which set of IP nodes, from the several coin networks it tracks, it will give back to the asking client.

multiseeder supports the 'settings.conf' configuration files of generic-seeder in a single binary, making it possible to support up to 10 different altcoin networks with the same VPS.

multiseeder uses the ncurses library to present a consistent, organized display.

example 'settings.conf' files are included in the distribution for Bitmark (MARKS), Exor (EXOR) and Vertcoin (VTC)
multiseeder scans /usr/local for directories of the form 'sDNS.<COIN>', and seeks to read 'settings.conf' from each of these directories.
