Change look/target command output

Description

The look/target commands output an awful lot to the top line of the window, and in some cases this doesn't all fit - for instance, "You see an Aimless-looking merchant (unhurt, asleep) [r,g,q,t,p,o,+,-,<dir>,<click>]" goes a few characters over. Changes such as #924 would make this problem worse, with some outputs going more than 15 characters over.

In addition, the [r,g,q,t,p,o,+,-,<dir>,<click>] command list seems somewhat unhelpful without a hint about what all of those commands actually do.

Perhaps we could either move this command list to the bottom line (in place of the player status) or replace it with a "Press '?' for help" at the bottom of the screen, like in stores. This would free up more room for actual information on the top line, and probably feel a bit less cluttered.

Should fix both this and #924, with a "Press '?' for help" expanding into a three-line help, and coordinates on the top line. I haven't yet been able to test this with a main window larger than usual. adjust_panel in xtra2.c is now unused, FYI. Output on the top line is still >80 characters in extreme examples but is fine 99% of the time.
