Sophos-autoupdate on FreeBSD

the error message is not very informative, probably failing because the
unzip program isn't found. I installed unzip from the ports system and
them sym linked /usr/local/bin/unzip to /usr/bin/unzip which is where
the script expects it to be.

I've also munged the script so it can run every hour (once a day is NOT
enough)  and keep a copy of the previous IDE's just in case.

If you want my version, or Julian wants me to create a patch file then
let me know..
