This release includes several portability fixes for Sparc, OpenRISC,
musl, uClibc, non-glibc in general and Windows. It also adds and updates
multiple modules from latest upstream BSD changes, adding new functions,
macros and headers, in particular:

  * Add __arraycount() macro.
  * Add flopenat() function.
  * Add strtoi() and strtou() functions.
  * Add several new vis and unvis functions.
  * Add pidfile_fileno() function, and struct pidfh is now opaque.
  * The humanize_number() now understands HN_IEC_PREFIXES.
  * The fmtcheck() function supports all standard printf(3) conversions.
  * The getentropy(), and thus arc4random() functions will not block
    anymore on Linux on boot when there's not enough entropy available.
  * The arc4random() function handles direct clone() calls better.

In addition the fgetwln() function has now been marked as deprecated, to
match the already deprecated fgetln() function. As usual all interfaces
provided are briefly referenced from the libbsd(7) man page.
