[announce] New skarnet.org release, with relaxed requirements.

  New versions of the skarnet.org packages are available, which ease
the installation dependencies.

  - GNU make 4.0+ is not needed anymore. Packages will now build with
GNU make 3.81 or later.

  - The skalibs package does not install a /etc/leapsecs.dat file
anymore, and packages linked against this version of skalibs, or
future ones, will not compute time improperly if this file does not

  Additionally, the new s6 version features a new "-s" switch to
s6-svscan, that makes it possible to configure s6-svscan's behaviour
when it receives certain signals. This is useful, for instance, for
Ctrl-Alt-Del management when s6-svscan is used as process 1.


  Bug-reports welcome.
