Synchronet now requires the libarchive development package (e.g. libarchive-dev on Debian-based Linux distros, libarchive.org for more info) to build successfully.

    There appears to be an issue with QWKnet messages being crossed-up where · b81a0c95

    a message is posted to a different conference than the original sub-board with
    completely different header information. I suspect this has something to do
    HEADERS.DAT creation or import - not sure. So I added a "Conference"
    headers.dat field for *messages* (it already existed for votes) and use that
    value to confirm that the message header at the associated offset value in the
    QWK packet has the same conference number as the section in the headers.dat
    file. This is really just a sanity check and will only catch messages that were
    mistakening cross-posted (to a different conference) - *but* it log errors and
    save the bad QWK or REP file for me to examine more closely and see what's
    going on - and the message won't be imported (just "lost", which is also bad).
    
    So added more QWK import success/error checking and logging (especially for QWK
    packets since REP importing already had a lot of stats covered).
    
    Another check would be to store the original message number in the headers.dat
    file as well and use that to confirm that the headers.dat section is the
    correct match for the QWK message at that offset. I did not implement this
    check, yet. The conference number check seems like it'll catch most of the bad
    msgs and lead me to the root-cause.
