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

Change the C128 screen modes (C128_40X25 and C128_80x25) to use the C64

palette. I can only assume this was a typo? I'm also guessing this is the
same change that Payton Byrd made in his fork of SyncTERM (he erroneously
called 2.0), which I haven't been able to locate on github (anyone?). This
change makes SyncTERM (in C128 modes) appear more consistent with CGTerm.

With this change, I now see no difference between the C64_40X25 screen mode
and the C128_40X25 screen mode. (Deuce?)

I also have questions about the changes in some of the colors between
40 and 80 columns modes expressed here (but not observed with CGTerm):
https://www.commodore.ca/manuals/128_system_guide/app-i.htm
(e.g. 129 is supposedly green in 40 column mode and dark purple in 80 cols).
see also: 149, 151, and 159 - if this is true, then another palette
is needed for C128-80 mode but doesn't explain CGTerm's behavior
(the colors are the same in 40 and 80 column modes).

Also, the C64 palette changed pretty drastically since SyncTERM 1.0 where
the colors weres dull/muted and are now bright. And the initial attribute is
Blue on Grey (not black) - that wasn't the case with v1.0.
