Summary of changes since libspectre 0.2.5

This is another bugfix only release in the libspectre's 0.2 series.

The most important change in this release is that gs is now always
initalized with the flag -P- to make Ghostscript not look in the
current directory for library files. See Debian bug

Compiler flags -ansi and -pedantic are now optional and can be enabled
with --enable-iso-c configure option. It seems -pedantic causes
performance regression when compiling with Sun Studio compiler. Thanks
to Dagobert Michelsen for eporting the issue. (Bug #27735)

Files with a doseps header and without EOF comment are correctly
rendered now. (Bug #27830)
