Update to version 2.72.

This release fixes two recently discovered DoS vulnerabilities: Certain
HTML messages could crash the process and a bug sometimes caused server
discovery to go into an infinite loop.

Changes since version 2.67
       2.72 (June 16, 2005)
       +   "razor-client" no longer creates symlinks to itself
           upon installation; four new scripts have been added to
           the distribution to replace this functionality
           ("razor-admin", "razor-check", "razor-report",

       2.71 (June 15, 2005)
       +   A fix to Makefile.PL script to correctly invoke
           "razor-client" after installation. Thanks to Liam
           Quinn for the patch.

       2.70 (June 10, 2005)
       +   Fixed preprocessing of unusual HTML messages. This
           resolves the segfault issue in razor-agents. [Bug
       +   Fixed handling of certain malformed headers.
       +   Explicitly specify the record separator as "\n" when
           reading files, to ensure that someone else hasn't set
           it to undef. [Patch #537813]
       +   "razorzone" is no longer supported and has been
           removed from the documentation.
       +   Allow the config file to set razorhome.  [Bug
       +   Razor Agents no longer go into an infinite loop when
           discovery fails. [Bug #1016039]
       +   Properly creates "razor-*" symlinks after installa-
           tion.  [Bug #874468]
       +   Default to PERLPREFIX instead of PREFIX when
           installing man5 pages.  [Bug #1001320]
       +   Removed a call to $sha1->reset() which was breaking
           SHA1 calculation.  [Bug #1004858]
       +   "use_engines" is no longer supported and has been
           removed from the documentation.  [Bug #1120311]
       +   Shuffle the discovery, catalogue, and nomination
           server lists after loading them from disk; this pre-
           vents razor-agents from always starting with the same
           catalogue server.
       +   Replace the complex DNS lookup logic for discovery
           servers with a single DNS round robin.  [Bug #604679]
       +   Remove the ICMP ping logic for finding the "fastest"
           catalogue server; the configuration option for this
           logic is now ignored.  [Support #739464]
       +   Removed stale engine code for various signature types
           that are no longer used.
