  Description     : dupmerge2 finds and hardlinks identical files

dupmerge2 finds identical files in a given directory, identify identical files
and hardlink them to save space. It has the ability to produce ouput for 
zenity --progress. 

The initial concept is from dupmerge 1.73 by Phil Karn, has less features but 
hopefully offers better performance. It adds the ability to output to zenity 
progress bar and scans the directory with ftw. It should also better handle 
existing hardlinks (skipping the file comparison).
