   2012/10/14 -
     * review/improve no-leaks checking with valgrind.
     * add  null-pointer checks in copyOut in case a non-8bit encoding was
       used with the iconv configuration.
     * document environment variables used by luit in its manpage.
     * amend  the  check using nl_langinfo(CODESET) in 2011/10/30 changes,
       ignoring  that section if the -encoding option was given (report by
       Alexios Zavras).
     * support --datarootdir option in configure script.
     * updated configure macros:

                add another step to the test-program.

                fix  the case where stdin is redirected, e.g., in rpm/dpkg
                builds   (reported   in   Debian  #676461).  Also  correct
                return-check,  which could have been confused by typing on
                the keyboard while the check was running.

                use   AC_DEFINE_UNQUOTED()   rather   than   appending  to
                confdefs.h,  since  long-ago  concern about the ability to
                pass-through  parameterized  macros  appears  to  be not a
                problem, testing with 2.13 and 2.52

                add  workaround  for  Debian's modification of the version

                add check for clang

                add message to show the actual value used.

                also   match   (for   substitution)   variables   such  as

                fix after changes in ncurses to use --datarootdir

                add an ifdef'd chunk #5 for testing the 'tty' (rather than
                'pty')  and moved the important 'pty' chunk before opening
                the  slave  device  as  a  simple  way  of making the test
                program   lose  any  possible  race  between  parent/child
                processes in initializing both sides of the pseudoterminal
                (report by Christian Weisgerber).

                cleanup based on byacc 20121003.

     * update config.guess, config.sub
