SeaMonkey 2.49.5 released

Made a couple of modifications to 'seamonkey.SlackBuild' script -- disabled rust, changed $TMP to /tmp2, as /tmp is a tmpfs and not big enough. Yay, it compiled ...but install failed.

This is a starting point, a successful compile, that I can hack on. Some of the configure options need to be changed.
