FS#333 - Make text in "about" alt+b dialog selectable with the mouse and copy-able

When you press alt+b or access the “about” dialog in the Help menu it displays some text including software version number and list of contributors.

It would be nice to be able to select and copy this text using this mouse. Sometimes in the newsgroup I have to tell people what version of POVray I am using, and typing the version number can be a pain.

A freshly started instance of POV-Ray will give you the very same information in the message pane, which you can copy to the clipboard using the "Edit / Copy Pane" menu option.
