   2016/05/08 -
     * adapt Solaris fix for C11 changes from xterm #325.
     * modify  parseArgs  to  check  for a special case, e.g., from xterm,
       where  a  shell command that cannot be exec'd is passed as a single
       parameter. For that case, run the command via the shell.
     * reset  IEXTEN when turning off canonical mode, needed to make lnext
       control/V  work  consistently  on  BSD  platforms  (report/patch by
       Christian Weisgerber).
     * updated configure macros:

                add  a  fallback  to checking with posix_openpt(), in case
                someone's running the configure script in batch mode.

                change  FreeBSD  to  use  -Wl,-rpath  rather  than  -rpath
                option.  According  to FreeBSD #178732, either works since
                FreeBSD 4.x; however scons does not accept anything except
                the -Wl,-rpath form.

                use configured shell rather than /bin/sh

                add a case for OS/2

     * update config.guess, config.sub
