  Modified files:
    rescue/rescue        Makefile 
  Add some essential tools to rescue(8) in order to make it
  a versatile emergency tool:
  o sed(1) as a multi-purpose text filter -- can do grep's job and much more.
  o head(1), tail(1), and tee(1) as idiomatic text filters.
  o mt(1) to control tape drives (PR misc/98383).
  o chown(8) aka chgrp(8) to complement the ch* subset.
  o pkill(1) aka pgrep(1) to control running processes easily and thus to be
    able to recover from a serious problem or a fatal typo in an otherwise live
    system w/o a reboot.  (It also deserves adding to rescue(8) for its having
    triggered a latent bug in crunchgen(1), but we had better add a regression
    test for that. :-)
  The resulting change in rescue(8) size has the following order of magnitude
  on i386: 3787656 - 3727872 = 59784, i.e. just a tad.
  Discussed on:   -hackers (I seem to have wearied all opponents :-)
  PR:             misc/98383
