I apologize for my hasty Changelog.

I was suprised to find in the util-linux sources included with RH7.2
that kill.c is actually BSD-licenced. So any fears were unfounded. However,
the signals (for -l, --list) are indeed hard-coded, and options are handled
in the same basic way as this patch (not getopt), so I didn't really find what 
I was looking for.

This patch changes the option-handling in kill to use a switch instead
of if/else if/else clauses. It also enables basic long-option handling.

* kill.cc (main): Handle options in a switch. Add long-option for --force.
