I am back from my work trip, and I can see all the work on pktools!
Thanks Bas. I agree that creating all the man pages and renaming the
library packages is beyond the original intention of enabling libLAS
1.8.0 to be moved from experimental.

The only thing I am not sure has been checked, is whether pktools
successfully builds against libLAS 1.8.0. So I will do a test of this.

Then I assume we would be ready upload the updated pktools and then
merge libLAS from experimental & upload?
