Don't disclose whether bones were created upon death

ForNetHack 3.4.3
DescriptionFixes the NetHack 3.4.3 bug where dying to a mummy, vampire, etc. leaks information.
 When dying to a monster that sets ugrave_arise, the messages are different if bones are left, and if bones are not left. (You get a message along the lines of "Your corpse rises from the ground as an orcish mummy" only if bones are left.)

This patch prints the message even if bones are not left, making it impossible to determine whether bones were left or not from inside the game. This makes bones-related exploits more difficult.
