Subject: 1.94.1 NEWLIST file nitpick

This patch cleans up some small problems in the 1.94.1 NEWLIST file.
(Comments, anyone?)  The only halfway-important changes are:
- Nuking the sentence that says you must move archive2.pl into the
  top-level directory.
- Changing the filename sample.aliases to majordomo.aliases.

(I don't have diff -u.)
