[ANNOUNCE] libbsd 0.12.0 released

This release includes:

 - Support for Solaris, macOS and AIX (now build and pass tests).
 - Improve ABI selection handling for a more controlled ports ABI.
 - Sync strtoi()/strtou() implementations from NetBSD to get the new
   error handling behavior.
 - Add explicit time32 and time64 support.
 - Manual pages, documentation and build system cleanups.

This release should now build and work on the systems listed above. The
ABI selection has been greatly improved which will make it easier to
port and select what needs to be exposed on specific ports (although the
headers still need to be improved). This release also adds explicit time32
and time64 support, so that the library can handle time32 systems with
no time64 support, time32 systems with time64 support, and time64 systems.
