Log Message:
Update to 1.0pre9, fix MASTER_SITES to use archive directory, so the next
update does not break the fetch.  Improve the method used to insert GNU
patch into the installed package.  Update fixes include:

* A set of changes to support "mawk".

  If "awk" is "mawk", certain Posix regexps that were used by
  arch aren't handled, causing commands to fail.  These have
  been replaced with regexps that all awks should understand.
  (Patch from Jan Harkes.)

* LC_ (locale) environment variables are now set more carefully.
  (Reported by Federico Di Gregorio.)

* A new command, `make-sync-tree' has been added.
  See "".

* The "Standard-date:" field in log messages is now GMT
  and includes the time-of-day.
  (Suggested by Daniele Nicolodi.)

* Remaining (reported) Solaris portability problems fixed.
  (Patches from Jonathan Geisler.)

* CDPATH is unset in `larch'

  If CDPATH is set, with some shells, `cd' produces unwanted
  output.  Therefore, `larch' unsets CDPATH. (Reported by
  John Ellson, diagnosed by Lele Gaifax.)

* Various minor bug fixes.  Among these are the configuration
  system changes requested by people who have tried building
  on cygwin, though I'm certain there's much more to be done
  before arch actually works on cygwin.

* Naming Conventions Tweaked
  Source files can now begin with "_" and must not end with ".a" or
  ".o".  The names "CVS.adm", "SCCS", and "RCSLOG" have been added to
  the list of "not a source file".  (reported by several people).

  Someone asked to also exclude some compiler intermediate
  files, such as "" -- I've not done that because it
  is common practice to distribute such files with programs
  to make bootstrapping easier.

* user id syntax liberalized

  "_" is now permitted in the unique id part of a user id.  This is
  really a partial fix -- `valid-id' should agree precisely with
  various standards on what is a legal email address and domain
  name, but the more extensive fix is being postponed until a
  more complete review of all of the naming convention functions
  takes place.  (Reported by don_dayley.)

* valid-log-file error message clarified

   In response to user confusion, `valid-log-file' now reports
   errors like:

        missing (or empty) "Summary:" header

   instead of just

        missing "Summary:" header

   (Reported by several people.)

* bugs in the hackerlab "tests/arrays-tests" and "tests/fs-tests" have
  been fixed (Reported and patched by Matthias Neeracher).

* an awk syntax error in `log-header-field' has been fixed
  (Reported and patch by Jan Harkes.)

* You can now use an alternative shell for configuration

  "config.status" files now start with "#!" lines and the
  "src/build-tools/scripts" configuration scripts use an
  explicitly chosen shell to call each other.  The top-level
  configure script now accepts a "--config-shell SHELL" option.

  This is a small step towards cygwin portability, and eases
  some of the portability constraints on "configure" for systems
  where "/bin/sh" is not quite posix.

  (Reported by Jason Diamond and others.)

* added a --pull option to push-mirror

  The new option speeds up the case of pushing from a remote archive
  to a local mirror.

* avoid dirent portability problems

  Some portability problems in libhackerlab's use of dirent have been
  fixed.  (Reported by several people.)

* `star-merge --finish' was broken.
  Now it isn't.

* `prepare-branch': bug fix from geisler

* `reconcile': bug fix from geisler

* `whats-missing': bug fix from geisler
