                   Repair "./configure && make" for systems without any
                     provider of high quality entropy
                     and try reading /dev/urandom on those
                   Ensure that user-defined character encodings have
 converter
                     functions when they are needed
                   Fix mis-leading description of argument -c in xmlwf.1
                   Rely on macro HAVE_ARC4RANDOM_BUF (rather than
 __CloudABI__)
                     for CloudABI
