lunaric-sound build problem

I've looked at your changes to lunaric-sound and you don't understand
how modules work.

prepare-install is what invokes installwatch.  Installwatch is what
keeps track of which files are installed and this file list is which
files are removed during an LRM. So your POST_REMOVE is not necessary
and is wrong.  The /var/lib/lunar/sound directory is cleaned on an lrm,
but the sound directory itself is left as an empty dir.

The current BUILD script is already correct.  "cp -avx . /var/lib/lunar/sound"
will automatically create the sound subdir in /var/lib/lunar.  Try it
from the command line and see for yourself.

The CONFLICTS file is wrong in the current module and I have fixed that.
There is no longer a lunar-sound module in moonbase, so I have removed the
CONFLICTS file from lunaric-sound.
