libxcb provides an interface to the X Window System protocol, which
replaces the traditional Xlib interface.

libX11 also uses XCB as a transport layer, allowing software to make
requests and receive responses with both, which eases porting to XCB.

This release fixes build issues for Windows & NetBSD platforms.

For those building for 32-bit platforms, it also enables use of the
"large file" APIs - though xcb mainly uses stat() calls on sockets,
not normal files.

Since this release was generated using the new GNU autoconf 2.72, this
also adds a --enable-year2038 configure flag which may allow xcb to
work with sockets whose timestamps are later than January 19, 2038, but
this has not been tested.
