[Slackbuilds-users] unrar should be discontinued

The unrar SlackBuild should be discontinued.

The current release of rar/unrar, the one you get from rarsoft's homepage,
is 4.2.4.

The current unrar SlackBuild builds 4.0.7, which is ridiculously ancient. I
contacted the maintainer months ago and never got a response.

We have a corresponding *rar* SlackBuild which is much more reasonably up
to date (it builds 4.2.0). Its README file indicates that it can be set to
build unrar, but this is not the default behavior because SBo has the unrar

I recommend pulling the unrar SlackBuild and setting the rar SlackBuild to
build unrar.
