  Description     : Serial-over-lan (sol) client for Intel AMT

AMT (included in Intel vPro and Centrino Pro) provides out-of-band (OOB)
management for Desktops and Laptops, using an agent integrated in the
network adapter and in the motherboard.

Serial-over-lan provides a (secure) way to connect a remote computer,
through a pseudo serial interface.
This package provide 2 terminals (amtterm and gamt) to connect to that
pseudo serial interface from a remote computer. amttool is a perl script
to gather informations about and remotely control AMT managed computers.

I have made an early release, but I'll ask for advice from a mentor,
then a sponsor (since I am not a DD).
