[Ftp-release] [ANNOUNCE] libbsd 0.2.0 released

This is not the first public release of the library, but the first
announced one. The project has existed for a long time now, initiated
mainly to ease porting software with strong BSD origins like ufsutils
to GNU/Linux, and then to GNU/kFreeBSD.

So the main purpose of the project is to keep collecting useful
functions commonly found on BSD systems on basic libraries like libc or
libutil, and lacking on others like GNU systems, thus making it easier
to port code from BSDs, without needing to embed the same code over and
over again on each project.

It currently assumes mostly a GNU based system to run on, but I'd gladly
accept patches or make it build on other systems if people would request
it or report build or runtime issues.

This release includes several new function additions and updates from
some of the BSDs, header cleanups to match BSD contents and locations
(check for usage of deprecated headers in your code, they will disappear
eventually), new man pages, fixes to the build system and minor polishing
here and there.
