Log Message:
Update to parrot version 4.2.0.

Upstream changes:

 - API Changes
    + The signature of getprop was changed from (PMC,String,PMC) to
      (PMC, PMC,String) for consistency
 - Core
    + Parrot Calling Conventions (pcc) now reuses Continuation PMCs
      internally, which reduces GC work by 25% and improves
      the fib.pir benchmark by 6%

    + Improved the detection of Clang-ish compilers during configuration
    + Fixed a possible segfault bug when reading packfiles with no
     constants or main_sub
    + By default, Parrot has now elevated these GCC warnings to errors
      during compile time:
        implicit-function-declaration, undef, missing-braces,
        nested externs, old-style-definition, strict-prototypes,
    + The OS Dynamic PMC now has separate functions to unlink a file
      and remove an empty directory (rmdir)
    + Fix building on Cygwin due to an improperly named DLL file
    + Various small bug fixes pointed out by static and dynamic analysis

      implementations (currently C and Perl) and specification.
    + Good progress has been made on the threads branch which builds
      on the green_threads branch. This gets Parrot much closer to
      being able to utilize multiple CPU cores seemlessly. More details
