NetBSD 1.5.1 NetBSD 1.5.1 (GUINNESS) #0: Sat Aug 11 23:34:53 EST 2001 i386

The package in www/galeon provides a 0.12.xprex release which is the unstable branch of the galeon browser.  This update provides the latest stable version (0.11.5).  Perhaps the 0.12 should be moved to a galeon-unstable package or something similar?

Also, I found a bug in the libc included with 1.5.1 (see pr 13734) that causes breakage in galeon's find dialog box and its HTTP auth headers (strings being truncated as a result of bad counts).  I've included a patch-ac that adds a fixed version of the broken function and fixes this problem.  The libc problem appears to be fixed in -current so this patch could be removed when it's fixed in 1.5.1.
