[ANNOUNCE] libbsd 0.11.8 released

This release includes:

 - Portability fixes for Solaris, macOS and AIX.
 - Build fixes for the modern C effort.
 - Adjust declaration shadowing to match new glibc additions.
 - Manual page sync to get rid of the last BSD-4-Clause license.
 - Manual pages, documentation and build system cleanups.

This release greatly improves portability to the systems listed above,
but there is still some work pending to make it build out of the box and
to stabilize the ABI on those systems, which was blocking this release,
so that has been postponed and should appear in the next one.
