xditview displays ditroff output on an X display.

This release adds -help & -version options to the xditview command.
It also enables the use of the Xft code inherited from XFree86 which
was previously not enabled in our conversion from Imake to autoconf.

For those building for 32-bit platforms, it also enables use of the
"large file" APIs - though no file processed by this program should ever
be anywhere near 2GB in size, it may be stored on a filesystem which uses
large inode numbers not supported by the original 32-bit APIs.
Since this release was generated using the new GNU autoconf 2.72, this
also adds a --enable-year2038 configure flag which may allow it to
work with files whose timestamps are later than January 19, 2038, but
this has not been tested.

While this program remains lightly maintained by X.Org, packagers may
want to consider if the gxditview fork maintained as part of the groff
packages offers a better alternative for your users.
