Add a a pointer to the target (ch->tracking), then in a movement 
routine, probably in do_simple_move, check ch->tracking.  I it's not 
NULL, then call the tracking code (bypassing the get_char_vis call since 
you've already got a pointer to the target.

You might also want to add a PLR_TRACKING flag, so if the mob dies you 
can tell the player something to the effect "The track seems to have 
faded into oblivion."
