Those who are upgrading have the option of simply not including those
changes. (Mainly two size changes, only one variable was added.)

Won't be marking it with a version number (too messy with current binary
setup), you'll know quite obviously if your pfile needs conversion.

1) Added variable for autoeq location to rent file. (and spares)
2) Increased password length to 20.
3) Changed bitvectors to bitvector_t from long/int/sh_int/whatever.

So your pfile doesn't really _have_ to change, only the rent files.
