Log Message:
Note the upgrade of am-utils to 6.0.6:

*** Notes specific to am-utils version 6.0.6:

- new ports:
	Apple OS X support (Darwin, Rhapsody)

- reworked autoconf scripts so that newer versions of known OSs will default
  their configuration to the last known version (better chance that it will
  pass autoconf and work).

- linux support for lofs and "bind" mounts, so type:=lofs can work (whether
  you're using autofs or not)

- renamed amd.conf option "selectors_on_default" to "selectors_in_defaults"
  (on -> in, and added "s").  Old name remains in place for compatibility.

- lots of cleanups of debugging and logging messages

- Bugs fixed:
	lots of Linux-related ones, so it compiles for recent kernels
	better checking on various mount options of the form foo=N or foo=STR
	fixed NFS errno mapping bug which mapped ENOENT to success

*** Notes specific to am-utils version 6.0.5:

- Minor ports:
	support for Linux 2.4 kernels and newer GLIBC versions
	cleanup of AIX and IRIX6 ports

- Support new mount options:
	proplist (ACLs over NFS, DU-4.0)
	kerb, rdirplus, readdirsize, and xlatecookie (NetBSD-1.5K+)
	nonlm, lock, nolock (Linux)

- Don't force rsize/wsize on Linux 2.2.18+ and 2.4.x.  Improves performance
  a lot.

- Lots of documentation updates: texinfo, man pages, scripts, and more.

- LDAP: included proposed Schema and Internet Draft for LDAP Schema.  See
  README.ldap for more information.

- Removed all remains of the dangerous amq -M code.

- Major bug fix: initialize NFS fileid field correctly, to avoid cache
  aliasing problems, esp. on Linux.

- Major Linux bug fix: map errnos to NFS errors (mistakenly turned off a
  while back).  Also support unused errno 41.

- Other bugs fixes:
	default MAXHOSTNAMELEN (if undefined) is 256, not 64
	truncate hostnames to MAXHOSTNAMELEN (security fix)
	alignment problem in getwire() on ALPHA
	other buf overflow problems (security fixes)
	ctl-amd supports "condrestart" (Red Hat)
	bell char is \g not \a
	lostaltmail verify MAILDIR is defined
	am-eject accepts "floppy" and "cdrom" as args
	other assorted small bug fixes
