- Update to 218

- Changelog 

    *  change behavior when encountering an illegal character in a title string. Rather than reject the string, translate illegal characters into "?" and use the string (requested by Thomas Wolff).
    * improve checks for nonprinting characters in title strings (report by Samuel Thibault).
    * correct typo in menu labels, changing print-redirect to print-redir, making it follow the manpage and match the usage for the actions table (report by Samuel Thibault).
    * correct a typo that prevents building with some older systems such as Solaris 2.6 (report by Julian Bridle). 

Patch #217 - 2006/8/20

    * minor improvements to FreeType font layout and drawing.
    * add a check in the ptyInitialErase logic to ensure that the termcap was read (Redhat Bugzilla #201246).
    * limit changes for reverse-video from patch #216 to cases where the reverse-video command-line option is used (report by Zdenek Sekera).
    * correct bitmap-derived pointsizes for TrueType fonts; they should be proportional to the square root of the area of the bitmap fonts.
    * add resources to specify pointsize of TrueType fonts (request by Reuben Thomas).
    * improve install of terminfo by filtering out harmless messages related to extended capabilities. At the same time, use ncurses tic to compile the extended capabilities if possible (report by Zdene		k Sekera).
    * update "xterm+pcfkeys" terminfo entry to correspond to patch #216. 

Patch #216 - 2006/8/3

    * improve handling of ConfigureNotify events by checking if there are further events in the queue which obsolete the current one (adapted from rxvt 2.7.5). Only the normal normal (non-toolbar) conf	iguration is addressed in this patch.
    * several changes to terminfo:
          o incorporate some minor changes from ncurses to help keep these synchronized:

                modify sgr/sgr0 in xterm-new to improve tgetent's derived "me". 
                remove ncv flag from xterm-16color 
                improve xterm-256color by combining the 16-color setaf/setab strings with SGR 48, and cancelling the setf/setb strings. 

          o use extended function-key definitions for xterm-sun, xterm-sco entries.
          o add terminfo building-blocks corresponding to the modifyFunctionKeys and modifyCursorKeys resources. 
    * ifdef'd Sun function-key feature to make it optional, like HP and SCO.
    * extend table for termcap-query feature through F63, and updated to match.
    * modify logic for function-key input processing to allow function key numbers which are constructed by control- and shift-modifiers to extend beyond X's hardcoded limit of 35.
    * add control sequence to set or reset the eightBitInput resource.
    * change default resource modifyFunctionKeys to 2 to avoid sending SS3 with parameters (report by Kalle Olavi Niemitalo).
    * add control sequences for setting and resetting the values of the modifyCursorKeys, modifyFunctionKeys and modifyOtherKeys resources.
    * add modifyFunctionKeys resource like modifyCursorKeys. Setting this to zero allows one to use the control- and shift-modifiers to construct function key strings, for terminals using many function k	eys, e.g., for xterm-sun or xterm-sco.
    * modify screen responses and function-key logic to reduce the number of writes made, to make it less likely that an application would read only part of a function-key in a read operation (suggeste	d by John E Urbanczyk).
    * add combiningChars resource, which allows the user to specify the maximum number of combining characters that xterm will store for each cell in wide-character mode (prompted by request by 		Markus Kuhn to increase the limit from 2).
    * improve logic in metaSendsEscape in case the Alt- and Meta-keys are mapped to different modifiers. That allows one to use the Alt-key for shifting in the eightBitInput and use a Meta-key modifier 	to prefix the result with an <ESC>.
    * improve modifyCursorKeys logic to prevent it from modifying codes where eightBitInput or metaSendsEscape are set (request by Dan Nicolaescu).
    * improve modifyCursorKeys logic to prevent it from changing the user input when other modifiers such as AltGr are used (report by Thomas Wolff).
    * extend modifyCursorKeys to include the numeric keypad when in application mode.
    * improve -reverse (-rv) option (patch by Jason Vas Dias, Redhat #189161).
    * workaround for color resources on Fedora-5 which made the toolbar colors inconsistent.
    * corrected calls used for --disable-setuid option, add debugging traces to help diagnose this area.
    * modify configure script to ensure that USE_UTMP_SETGID is defined only if the check for POSIX saved-ids succeeds, or corresponds to one of the BSD systems known to have a workable setegid function.
    * extend configure check for POSIX saved-ids to include BSD systems
    * modify CF_SYSV configure macro to work with gcc on HPUX 10.20, whose broken <term.h> relies on including <termios.h>.
    * change order of setuid/setgid ifdef checks in Imakefile to make it simpler to produce a setgid install, allowing the latter to override the former (prompted by an XFree86 commit).
    * adapt a fix for setgid support from subsequent XFree86 changes (patch by Emanuele Giaquinta).
    * further improve setgid support (patches by Emanuele Giaquinta). 

Patch #215 - 2006/6/19 - XFree86

    * improve setgid support by exploiting the saved-ids feature on which it relies (patch by Emanuele Giaquinta).
    * make the modifyOtherKeys resource disabled by default since the intermediate setting altered some common bindings (report by Emanuele Giaquinta). 

Patch #214 - 2006/6/18 - XFree86

    * modify makefile rule for ctlseqs.txt to strip backspace/overstrikes, and add a copy of ctlseqs.txt to the source tarballs (requests by Bram Moolenaar, Emanuele Giaquinta).
    * add modifyOtherKeys resource, analogous to the modifyCursorKeys resource. This applies to keys that normally would transmit nothing when a given modifier is applied (request by Dan Nicolaescu).
    * add default to the acceptable values for the keyboardType resource, allowing the -kt command-line option to override app-defaults resource settings of sunKeyboard, etc.
    * correct ifdef's for XkbBell() which used the header file but not the corresponding function in patch #175 (report by Zach Beane).
    * add xterm manpage to the --with-symlink logic.
    * regenerated configure script to omit some debugging artifacts of the SIGWINCH test.
    * fix install-man rule in to avoid including the $(DESTDIR) value in substitutions made on the manpages (patch by Emanuele Giaquinta).
    * improved fix for cursor deallocation (Redhat #186935, patch by Jason Vas Dias).
    * improve checks for setuid/setgid operation to accommodate limited resource management in some kernels (GenToo #193238).
    * update config.guess, config.sub 

Patch #213 - 2006/4/30 - XFree86

    * minor optimization to cell layout; will use that to simplify some logic and allow for more than two combining characters in another patch.
    * add utf8Latin1 resource to make optional the feature from patch #209 which allowed ISO-8859-1 fonts to be used in cases where a wide font was given. This would only work for the special case where the user normally used Latin-1 and wanted some wide characters (report by Rostislav Krasny).
    * add utf8Title resource to manpage (Novell #52655).
    * fix typo in table entry for utf8Title resource which made it treated as an integer rather than boolean (patch by Mike Fabian, Novell #52655).
