- Fix bugs in thin_delta.
- Fix recent regression in thin_repair.
- Force g++-98 dialect.

- Fix bug in thin_dump when using metadata snaps.

- Install pdata_tools and all its symlinks for various tools to
   /sbin and also provide symlinks for all tools in /usr/sbin
   for backward compatibility.
- Link with libstdc++ statically.

- Add proper cmath header file to sources.

- era_invalidate may be run on live metadata if the --metadata-snap
   option is given.
