	AC_CANONICAL_HOST and $host_os.  Add --disable-lfs option.

	* lib/getdate.y: Update to fileutils 4.0 getdate.y, with one patch:
	* lib/ (AUTOMAKE_OPTIONS): Append ../src/ansi2knr,
	since getdate.y now uses ANSI code.

	* Check for -linet, this library is required on
	a few systems for gettimeofday() or getservbyname().  Also, on ISC
	4.0, this avoids a broken version of rename().
	Reported by Dean Gaudet, Goeran Uddeborg, Mike Rogers and
	Peder Chr. Norgaard.

	* Ensure -lsocket is tested after -lnsl.  This is
	required in particular for SINIX-Z, an SVR4.0 system.
	Reported by Manfred Weichel and Mark Frost.

	* All tests reordered for clarity.

	* Use AC_TIME_WITH_SYS_TIME, test for <sys/time.h>.
	This should solve the problem of multiple inclusions of <time.h>.
	Also, also check for <sys/timeb.h>, for getdate.y tests this.

	* AC_CONST was already added since 1.11.2, but no
	ChangeLog entry for it, so here is one, with list of reporters.
	* AIX 3.2 RS/6000 IBM's compiler was unable to compile regex.c,
	this might be solved already through improved Autoconf tests.

	* Completely replaced, lurking at the previous one.
	At the same time, solve a few minor problems reported by users.
	The most frequently reported ones pertained to a trailing \ in a
	comment, and rmt installing in /etc.

	* Also process lib/ and src/
	Substitute CFLAGS, LDFLAGS and YFLAGS from the environment.
	Use AC_CHECKING instead of using echo explicitely.
	Use AC_HEADER_CHECK(unistd.h) instead of obsolete AC_UNISTD_H.

	* Generate a configuration header file.  This not
	only puts less clutter in make output, but also goes around some
	compilers' limits about the number of allowed -D options.
	Reported by Nelson H.F. Beebe.

	* acconfig.h: New file.

	* Split distribution into a few subdirectories, for easing
	maintainance.  So far: src, lib, scripts, msdos which are to be
	distributed; then rmail, texinfo, ARCH and misc to be kept here.
	* scripts/ChangeLog: Initialized by moving entries related to
	scripts out of this ChangeLog.

	* Taking over maintenance duties.
