This is my first stab at converting to use native perl functions, rather than calling external apps (causing a pretty hefty slowdown on cygwin). So far, I've simply gone for the low-hanging fruit - simple cp and mv operations.

A recursive delete function should be fairly simple (to replace "rm -rf").

The next step is probably to write a sort of "find" implementation that takes a search expression and a callback function or something like that. It doesn't need to be a full find replacement of course. Just enough to do what buildzip needs (find and copy, I believe).

This will need a fair bit of testing of course, since we don't want the zips to be broken.
This task depends upon

Updated patch. Most things have been changed from shelling out to using Perl functionality.

Hopefully this provides a nice speedup.

I *think* this produces identical zip files to current SVN.

Fixed a few issues:
- Cleanup .cp files
- Remove a leftover printf
- Actually create .rockbox/database.ignore
- Pipe all zip output to /dev/null
