remctl 2.3

I've had this release sitting waiting to go out for quite a while and this evening I finally found the time to finish the release process. This is mostly a bug fix and test release, but it also increases the limit on arguments to a remctl command to 4096 from 64. This is just an arbitrary limit to prevent a memory DoS attack on the server, and we had a need here at Stanford for a lot of arguments.

With this release, remctl also builds properly with Automake 1.10 and Autoconf 2.60 (and newer), so the documentation of how to patch Automake can be removed. Thanks to the Automake and Autoconf developers for fixing the problems with non-recursive builds.

You can get the latest version from the remctl distribution page. Normally I would also upload new packages to Debian unstable at the same time, but since we're approaching release freeze, I'm going to hold off until etch is frozen. In the meantime, you can get the packages from my personal Debian repository.
