It currently just whines a bit if it can't find unrar. It is getting
increasingly important to do this scanning, and so I would rather leave
it in place to encourage people to get hold of unrar.

I have also internally changed the child forking delay to 11 seconds.
With 10 seconds and 5 seconds, the children will tend to group together
on multi-cpu systems. Changing it to 11 and 6 causes a much better
spread of processes.
