Avahi 0.6.5

This release fixes some bugs and adds a new API function.
 * avahi-browse: properly show services that are removed from the 
 * fix build on bi-arch platforms, on GNU/kFreeBSD, on MIPS and 
   for non-DBUS builds
 * add new API function avahi_nss_support() and DBUS function
   IsNSSSupportAvailable() which may be used to detect whether
   libc's gethostbyname() supports mDNS domain names.
 * patch avahi-bookmarks to make use of
   IsNSSSupportAvailable(). avahi-bookmarks will now generate links
   with real hostnames instead of numeric IP addresses if mDNS support
   is detected for gethostbyname().
 * add init script for Mandriva Linux
 * speed up avahi_client_free()
 * man page updates
 * install missing header thread-watch.h
 * fix avahi-bookmarks to work with certain twisted versions
 * fix record updating
 * Use pkg-config's Requires.private directive where it makes sense

This release is backwards compatible with Avahi 0.6, 0.6.1, 0.6.2,
0.6.3 and 0.6.4.
