Gqcam 0.6

Gqcam is a GTK based clone of QuickPict, the program that comes with QuickCams. It displays a continually updated view from the camera, and lets you snap pictures and save them in ppm or jpeg format. Changes: Much more versatile code; gqcam should now work with a wider range of cameras (specifically with CPiA, in general with any driver that supports the read() command). Also added a menu bar, tear-off control panel, and command line options for dumping images to stdout and setting camera parameters
