IMFORT Changes in V2.11

There were several changes to the IMFORT interface with the release of IRAF Version 2.11.

The initial V2.11 export version of IMFORT can not write V1 images (images readable by earlier versions of IRAF), but in the V2.11.1 patch release an "oifversion" environment variable is supported by IMFORT, which allows the output version for new images to be specified. Like "min_lenuserarea" this will need to be defined at the host level to be recognized by IMFORT programs. Set "oifversion" to either 1 (for V1 images) or 2 (the new V2 images, and the default) .
