[pmwiki-users] problem with https and includeurl

Indeed, I confirm that the documented way to include URLs on the same 
server doesn't work:

   (:includeurl /samplesite/path/page.html :)

The reason is that the target URL is processed by the MakeLink function 
in order to test if the external link is approved.

But if it is not an external link (http, https, ftp...) this function 
assumes it is an internal page link, and having more than one among "/" 
and "." would be an invalid page name, so it returns an empty string.

With the current includeurl.php, the loading of local resources is 
broken. You can use the full URLs.

A possible fix would be to replace "$url" with "$tgt" on lines 80 and
