Poorman: Use layoutmanager

This is hrev30234.
There are several issues with cut off labels and buttons. PoorMan could do with some layoutmanaging love. The first-startup alert, too, the last "?" looks lost, alone in the last line.
I felt using "Folder" consistently instead of "Directory" would be better. I also changed the menu item "Preferences" to "Settings" which makes more sense in configuring the server as it's not a question of personal preference. "Index Page" became a more user friendly "Start Page". See attached patch.
Here are a few enhancements, maybe good tasks for newcomers:
- Have the content of the console resize with the window. Same goes for the settings panel.
- A bit more space between the console and the status info above it.
- The location settings text boxes don't accept drag&drops (how un-Haiku).
- Combine location of Web Folder and Start Page. Since the start page has to be inside the web folder, open just one file panel. If the user selects a folder, only fill in the Web Folder location, if he selects a file, choose that file as Start Page and its folder as Web Folder.
There's no category Applications | PoorMan yet. [Also, what have you done to Trac? It's lightning fast right now!]
