Removal of nikto


Nikto was orphaned some time ago  and has been removed from unstable and
testing. I  am currently packaging the  latest version of it  and I have
discovered that it contains some non-free files. Those files are present
in the 1.35 version that is present in stable. This makes nikto non-free
while it is in main.

Concerned  files are  plugins/*.db. They  are still  distributable along
with nikto  so there is no  license violation. I have  been suggested on
debian-legal to ask for removal for the next point release of Etch.

Make it right before you make it faster.
