Summary:  Minor portability fixes for compiling and installing on Solaris

Original Submission:  Overall, mldonkey compiles and installs very cleanly on 
Solaris, but there are two minor portability problems.

1) The src/utils/lib/ does not end with a   newline.  This 
causes the Solaris sed (which only deals with complete lines) to remove the 
last line when generating the file, giving a file which does not 
compile.  Simply adding a newline after the last line in the .in file fixes the 

2) The install target in Makefile uses "test -e" to see if various binaries 
have been compiled.  -e is a GNU extension which does not exist in Solaris 
test.  However, using the standard -f switch will work just as well since the 
binaries are known to be regular files (not directories or device nodes) if 
they exist.  Changing all "test -e" to "test -f" in config/ fixes 
the problem.
