rra-c-util 6.0

Quite some time ago, I added strlcat and strlcpy functions to my portability C library. I've subsequently become convinced that those functions are a bad idea, and have been moving all of my code to asprintf and other functions. This release completes that change for all the code provided by rra-c-util and removes strlcpy and strlcat from rra-c-util.

network_set_freebind, network_set_reuseaddr, and network_set_v6only, to set various socket options, are now public functions, since INN wanted to use them directly rather than only as part of other interfaces.

This release also has new Autoconf probes for Perl that assist with linking with embedded Perl, checking the Perl version, and checking for Perl modules, and a fix to the OpenSSL Autoconf macros for 1.1.0. It also adds a replacement for gss_oid_equal for older versions of Heimdal that lack it.

Finally, rra-c-util 6.0 implements the transition in C TAP Harness 4.0 from SOURCE and BUILD to C_TAP_SOURCE and C_TAP_BUILD for all the test suite helper code provided by this package.

You can get the latest version from the rra-c-util distribution page.
