libXmu - X miscellaneous utility routines library

This release includes two notable changes to XmuConvertStandardSelection():

1) It no longer supports XA_IP_ADDRESS, which only supported IPv4 addresses
   and simply provided the output of gethostbyname() on the local hostname.

2) XA_OWNER_OS no longer reports "BSD" for any Unix-like OS (including Linux)
   that it hadn't been coded to handle, instead relying on uname() where
   available to provide the OS name.

The lack of bug reports about the previously misleading output for these
suggests they're not widely used, with codesearch.debian.net only finding
matches in libXmu and the rust bindings to libXmu, and not any consumers
of these interfaces.
