New nALFS features

For those working with the XML of either the application battery, or the
LSB-SI, please update your nALFS source (src/tools/nALFS), and rebuild and

The two new features are

1) A new "nofail" option on the package node. This will initially be useful for
	the application battery to assist in a nightly build. If something
	breaks, it won't prevent the later application from being built.

2) A new conditional node. Initially, the only test type supported is "arch".
	This can be used to seperate architecture specific areas, such as
	applying a patch or even building something. Future test types will
	include "fexists" to test for the existance of a file.

A quick (non-sensical) example shows the syntax for these new features
