The xkbcomp utility compiles an XKB keyboard description for the X server
to be able use it.

This release mainly focuses on code cleanup and improving maintainability
and making static analysis work better on this code base.  It also fixes
a bug that could cause build failures with gcc when the -ftracer option
was used.

Since this release was generated using the new GNU autoconf 2.72, this
also adds a --enable-year2038 configure flag which may allow xkbcomp to
work with files whose timestamps are later than January 19, 2038 on
32-bit platforms, but this has not been tested.
