bis: sbopkg and its gui sbopkg_gui to build from source easily

In fact, I read on sbopkg and sbopkg_gui. The interface is neat, but there is often missing dependencies or the building will fail. Maybe I have to play with it more.

@beny and rava:
Did you used sbopkg or sbopkg_gui?

bis: sbopkg and its gui sbopkg_gui to build from source easily

I just meant your words:

By fix I mean these:
[sbopkg]
Replace in file /usr/sbin//sbopkg the expression:
upgradepkg --reinstall --install-new $OLDPKG%$INSTDIR/$INSTPKG
by:
spkg -u --reinstall --install-new $PKG
