Find duplicate text and mtext on a drawing.

;; This AutoLISP routine examines all the user-selected TEXT and MTEXT items,
;; and draws a line on the current layer between any two that have identical
;; string values.
;; Leading and trailing blanks spaces are ignored.
;; %% modifiers, like %%u, are not ignored.
;; Upper- and lower-case differences are not ignored.
