Subject: anonymous ftp and xmosaic

I finally understandd the problem with xmosaic not always being able
to make ftp connections.
Some systems managers demand a full email address as password for
an anonymous ftp connection.
Just user@ is not sufficient.
To overcome this problem ANON_FTP_HOSTNAME has to be defined in libwww/HTFTP.c.

diff -r xmosaic-0.9/libwww/HTFTP.c xmosaic-0.9.n/libwww/HTFTP.c
