 Log Message:
 Update atf to 0.13:
 Experimental version released on March 31st, 2011.
 This is the first release after the creation of the Kyua project, a more
 modular and reliable replacement for ATF.  From now on, ATF will change to
 accomodate the transition to this new codebase, but ATF will still continue
 to see development in the short/medium term.  Check out the project page at for more details.
 The changes in this release are:
 * Added support to run the tests with the Kyua runtime engine (kyua-cli), a
   new package that aims to replace atf-run and atf-report.  The ATF tests
   can be run with the new system by issuing a 'make installcheck-kyua' from
   the top-level directory of the project (assuming the 'kyua' binary is
   available during the configuration stage of ATF).
 * atf-run and atf-report are now in maintenance mode (but *not* deprecated
   yet!).  Kyua already implements a new, much more reliable runtime engine
   that provides similar features to these tools.  That said, it is not
   complete yet so all development efforts should go towards it.
 * If GDB is installed, atf-run dumps the stack trace of crashing test
   programs in an attempt to aid debugging.  Contributed by Antti Kantee.
 * Reverted default timeout change in previous release and reset its value
   to 5 minutes.  This was causing several issues, specially when running
   the existing NetBSD test suite in qemu.
 * Fixed the 'match' output checker in atf-check to properly validate the
   last line of a file even if it does not have a newline.
 * Added the ATF_REQUIRE_IN and ATF_REQUIRE_NOT_IN macros to atf-c++ to
   check for the presence (or lack thereof) of an element in a collection.
 * PR bin/44176: Fixed a race condition in atf-run that would crash atf-run
   when the cleanup of a test case triggered asynchronous modifications to
   its work directory (e.g. killing a daemon process that cleans up a pid
   file in the work directory).
 * PR bin/44301: Fixed the sample XSLT file to report bogus test programs
   instead of just listing them as having 0 test cases.
