Some notes...

- frameserver can be disabled in cmake WITH_IMAGE_FRAMESERVER

- added frameserver to our image format docs, moved frameserver doc
into our manual.
... this way a user has some chance of finding the docs (Right click
on formats -> Online manual -> frameserver docs)

... these docs are really out of date - had reference to amiga iff
format we didnt support for years, I made some corrections but
probably can do with more... :S

Maybe I can find some time to redo frameserver as an addon (after
mango), but for now don't have time for it.
