Contribution to sh-utils

Hi there,
         I  found myself  looking  for a  small  utility joining  path
components  into  a filename  (adding  slashes  where appropriate,  of
course),  but  I didn't  find  anything.  So  I wrote  `pathjoin'  and
included it into  sh-utils. I tried to observe  and respect GNU coding
standards and integrate it into the package as much as possible (being
italian, I have also added its messages in po/it.po).
The patch against sh-utils-2.0 is enclosed as an attachment.
Please let me know if you find this useful or not.


P.S. While I am at it, I'd like to mention that there was a small typo
in  the po/it.po  file: in  line  473 backslash  has been  erroneously
translated to backspace.

P.P.S. If you are wondering what `pathjoin' is good for, I can tell that
I'd like to have it available for $(shell ...) in Makefiles...
