[GRASS5] postscript labels for vector objects

I¹ve just updated the GIS Manager in the cvs to add a new layer type for
creating postscript labels for vector objects. It uses information from a
labels file (created with v.label) to make this text. Because it creates
TclTk text objects, it ignores v.label highlighting, background, and
rotation options.

Also, like the postscript text layer (renamed to clarify this), these labels
can display on the screen or be output to a postscript device (eps, pdf, or
printer). But they will not appear in raster ppm, jpeg, tif, or bmp output.

I¹ve also updated GIS Manager to conform with the new options database
specifications, developed by Cedrick Shock. This will make formatting
consistent across the entire gui and make it easy to change formatting
across the entire gui.
