[PATCH] make default raster image path relative to tileindex file

The attached path makes the path of image files for a TILEINDEX layer
relative to the directory of the TILEINDEX shapefile, if the map's
SHAPEPATH is not set.
I prefer having the path fall back to the TILEINDEX file's directory
rather than the mapfile directory, because the tile index file and the
raster imagery tend to be colocated, on a large volume separate from the
mapfile. Maybe there are some good reasons for relative-to-mapfile
behavior too, but I couldn't think of any. Behavior is unchanged if the
SHAPEPATH is set.
The patch also removes an unused variable from msDrawRaster() and prints
out the full (instead of relative) path of a raster file if that file
could not be opened. Printing the full path helped me with error
resolution; some might consider it less secure to be displaying it though.
