ITL release process

The ITL release process is far from perfect and far from satisfactory.
During the creation of the FreeBSD port for libitl, several things were

1) When the distribution file is uncompressed, it must uncompress to
   libitl-${VERSION} and not itl-libs.

2) When announced, libitl should be announced as a seperate package than

3) The library naming scheme is incorrect. libitl-${VERSION}.so is not a
   standard naming convention and will create conistency issues with
   many systems for future ITL software.

With that out of the way, I would like to note the ABI breakage that
will occur with my third point, and a point that must be executed.
