Mailscanner 3.20-2 RPM probs

I hate building rpm specs, they're a right royal pain to get right.

I've fixed these 2 faults, and will release 3.20-3 in a few minutes once I
have finished checking all my mail

This one is caused by a very minor, and irrelecant fault in the embedded
documentation in that file. Ignore this one.

I forgot to add mime-tools-patch.txt to the RPM file :-(

>/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.21813: cd: MIME-tools-5.411a: No such file or directory

And MIME-tools-5.411a helpfully unpacks into a MIME-tools-5.411 directory,
not 5.411a directory. Thanks Eryq
