A Backup and Archiving Utility

GNU cpio is a program to manage archives of files. This package also
includes 'mt', a tape drive control program. Cpio copies files into or
out of a cpio or tar archive. An archive is a file that contains other
files plus information about them, such as their pathname, owner, time
stamps, and access permissions. The archive can be another file on the
disk, a magnetic tape, or a pipe. This package normally includes the
program 'rmt', which provides remote tape drive control. Because there
is a compatible 'rmt' in the 'dump' package, 'rmt' is not included in
this package. If you are planning to use the remote tape features
provided by cpio, install the 'dump' package as well.

- Recommend mt_st as it is not hard dependency

- fix typos in the description
- add 'Require: mt_st' in order not to surprise users by the missing
  'mt' binary

- Disable mt building: this binary from mt_st package offers
  advanced capabilities with the same functionality.
- Enable rmt building: 'dump' package no longer include it, besides 
  cpio code base for rmt is more fresh.
- Reflect those changes in the package description.
